Subject Hbase Schema Query
Date Tue, 16 Aug 2011 16:18:17 GMT
Hi Friends,

I am currently trying to understand the schema design of Hbase. I have a scenario like this

RDBMS Table and Columns detail:

1)      Table : User

*         User_Id

*         User_name

2)      Table : Test

*         Test_Id

*         Test_name

*         User_Id

So here User_ID is being used as a Foreign key in table Test. I can think to map it to Hbase
schema like as shown below : In this case both User_Id and Test_Id have many to many relationship.



Column Family

Column Qualifier












I want to know that is there any better way to design this schema ? Please suggest

Thanks & Regards
