Subject [jira] Created: (HBASE-587) Add auto-primary-key feature
Date Thu, 17 Apr 2008 01:03:21 GMT
Add auto-primary-key feature

                 Key: HBASE-587
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-587
             Project: Hadoop HBase
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Bryan Duxbury
            Priority: Trivial

Some folks seem to be interested in having their row keys automatically generated in a unique
fashion. Maybe we could do something like allow the user to specify they want an automatic
key, and then we'll generate a GUID that's unique for that table and return it as part of
the commit. Not sure what the mechanics would look like exactly, but seems doable and it's
going to be a more prevalent use case as people start to put data into HBase first without
touching another system or pushing data without a natural unique primary key.
