Subject Re: Accumulo indexing social media data

Thanks Josh, I am testing the approach. I have one more consideration 
which is "CONDITIONAL MUTATIONS". I have stored the fields in CQ 
according to the following schema.

Row     <partition id>
/ \
CF <doc> <index>
| |
CQ <UUID> <Term>
| |
<field> <UUID>
| |
| <Field>
Value <value>

Documents have a fields url. if the url exist. I want mutations not to 
be added(skiped). But as I don't know the partitionID. How can I apply 
conditional mutations here to check the existence of url.
