Subject Re: Retrieve Column Family and Column with Java API
Date Mon, 12 Mar 2012 14:51:43 GMT

Yes and no.
No, because as a table can have millions of columns and these columns can
be different for every row, the only way to get all the columns is to scan
the whole table.
Yes, because if you scan the table you can have the columns names. See
Result#getMap: it's organized by family --> qualifier --> version --> value
And yes, because you can get the column families from the HTableDescriptor.
