Subject Beginner Question - Super Column Family Alternative
Date Fri, 06 Jan 2012 19:48:01 GMT
Please help me understand this.
I am not sure if this is the right place to ask such question.

I read that it is not safe to use Super Column Family.
And the alternative, I found was to use Composite Column Names.

Many managers will have many employees.

*<<SCF>>Manager_Employee
<<SuperColumnName>>#managerID
<<RowKey>>#employeeID*

So with Composite Column
Should it look like this ?
<<CF>>Manager_Employee
<<RowKey>>#managerID:employeeID

And is this the right approach to deal with not using SCF. Also will it 
not create a bigger row size , in case
I have many thousands of messages associated to each user and millions 
of users  ?


regards,
Ramesh
