Subject predefining columns
Date Mon, 18 Apr 2011 07:23:11 GMT
Hi all,

When defining a new column family, there is the possiblity to define
columns.  I see the benefit in defining the columns when I want to
explicitly define that a secondary index will be created on that
column.  I also see the benefit of predefining the type of that column
if it will differ from the default for the column family (byte versus
utf8 for example).

If none of these scenarios are needed, is there any benefit gained by
pre-defining the columns in a CF when creating the column family
