Subject Re: XML files in Hadoop

how many xml files are you planning to store? Perhaps it is possible to
store them directly on hdfs and save meta data in hbase. This sounds
more reasonable to me.

If the number of xml files is to large (millions and billions), then you
can use hadoop map files to put files together. E.g. based on years, or
