Subject Hbase table querying using 'like' concept of SQL
Date Fri, 08 Jan 2010 06:27:50 GMT


I am trying to evaluate this for a hbase table which has around 30
million records.  The table stores user information like 

{accountName , screenName, firstName , lastName, dataOfBirth} etc.  The
idea is to be able to query the rows using  "like" clause.


So something like      select  * from userProfile  with ....  where
accountName like 'po*'  and  screenName like 'scr*'   


What would be the most performant way to do this --  can I use some
tricks or do I need to get the rows and filter it myself  or  not a good
use case for hbase ?



Thanks for the help
