Hi Tupshin,
Thanks for your help; I appreciate it.
Could I do something like the following?
Given the same table you started with:
x  y  t  z
+++
a  1  2  10
a  2  2  20
I'd like to write a compareandset that does something like:
"If there is a row with (x,y,t,z) = (a,1,2,10), then update/insert a
row with (x,y,t,z) = (a,3,4,5) and update/insert a row with (x,y,t,z)
= (a,4,5,6)."
I don't see how I could do this with what you outlined abovejust
curious. It seems like what I describe above under the hood would be
a compareand(batch)set on a single wide row, so it maybe is
possible with the Thrift API (I have to check).
Thanks again!
Best regards,
Clint
