Subject creating multiple columns inside a column
Date Thu, 10 Mar 2011 06:05:43 GMT

I am new to HBase. Is it possible to create columns inside a column?

I am trying to design an hbase table with several column families (~100). In
each column family there will be several columns. Additionally, i*nside each
column* I want to create a few columns. Is this possible? If so, is there
any sample code anyone can share?

Also, I want to know which is a better design: a single large fat table or a
number of small tables.

With Regards,
