Subject RE: Updating Metadata of a Table
Date Tue, 27 May 2014 21:58:53 GMT
I’ve created a couple of tables via a third party API, GeoTools that I cannot delete and
re-create because other projects are now using the data from those tables.  Unfortunately,
in the version of GeoTools that we are using for our project “updateSchema” is currently
not available.  I wanted to handle this update of the metadata myself since the schema is
written as the part of the Metadata for the table.

I am still fairly green to Accumulo and have no idea the structure of the Metadata, how it
is represented for each table.

I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to do. Can you give us an example and a use
The metadata table is just like any other table where you can do inserts/deletes/etc.

Or even via the Java API?   I haven’t found any examples to update the MetaData for a specific
table, only read the current entries.

Does anyone know how to go about updating the metadata for a table in Accumulo via shell command
tool?  I’m using 1.4 and I cannot upgrade to the latest due to project requirements.
