Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLINK-2168) Add HBaseTableSource
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2017 11:27:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-2168?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15811535#comment-15811535

Thanks [~fhueske].
I was going thro the related JIRAs. I was just following how CSVTableSource works here.
Initial questions 
- Should we see the HBase tables as NOSQL table or like a normal table with a proper schema
which defines the set of columns per row?
- In HBase the columns can have same name but may come under different column families. So
how we bring that abstracted view?
- Next is that, we do scan of an hbase table and the result that we get is in the form of
bytes. Where can we do the type conversion to String, double, long etc? Or may be that is
not needed for now? Or may be calcite is of help here?

Sorry if my questions are naive here - after some discussion I think we can discuss on the
design part.

>          Components: Table API & SQL

> Add a {{HBaseTableSource}} to read data from a HBase table. The {{HBaseTableSource}}
should implement the {{ProjectableTableSource}} (FLINK-3848) and {{FilterableTableSource}}
(FLINK-3849) interfaces.
> The implementation can be based on Flink's {{TableInputFormat}}.
