Subject Dynamic columns in a column family?
Date Fri, 06 Jan 2012 18:00:07 GMT
Hi everyone,

I am wondering whether it is possible to not to define the column
metadata when creating a column family, but to specify the column when
client updates data, for example:

CREATE COLUMN FAMILY products WITH default_validation_class= UTF8Type
AND key_validation_class=UTF8Type AND comparator=UTF8Type;
set products['1001']['brand']= ‘Sony’;

In other words, we don't want to fix the columns definition when
creating a column family, as we might have to insert new columns into
the column family.  Is it possible to achieve it?
