 <p>The way dynamic partitioning works is that HCatalog locates partition columns in
the data passed to it and uses the data in these columns to split the rows across multiple
partitions. (The data passed to HCatalog <strong>must</strong> have a schema that
matches the schema of the destination table and hence should always contain partition columns.)

easily read and write data on the grid. HCatalog’s table abstraction presents users with

need not worry about where or in what format their data is stored – RCFile format, text
files, or SequenceFiles. </p>

 <section>
 <title>Data Model</title>
 <p>HCatalog presents a relational view of data. Data is stored in tables and these
tables can be placed in databases. Tables can also be hash partitioned on one or more keys;
that is, for a given value of a key (or set of keys) there will be one partition that contains
all rows with that value (or set of values). For example, if a table is partitioned on date
and there are three days of data in the table, there will be three partitions in the table.
New partitions can be added to a table, and partitions can be dropped from a table. Partitioned
tables have no partitions at create time. Unpartitioned tables effectively have one default
partition that must be created at table creation time. There is no guaranteed read consistency
when a partition is dropped.</p>
 
-<p>Partitions contain records. Once a partition is created records cannot be added
to it, removed from it, or updated in it. Partitions are multi-dimensional and not hierarchical.
Records are divided into columns. Columns have a name and a datatype. HCatalog supports the
same datatypes as Hive (see <a href="loadstore.html">HCatalog Load and Store</a>).

+  <li>To start receiving messages you need to implement the JMS interface <code>MessageListener</code>,
which, in turn, will make you implement the method <code>onMessage(Message msg)</code>.
This method will be called whenever a new message arrives on the message bus. The message
contains a partition object representing the corresponding partition, which can be retrieved
as shown here:
+<source>
 @Override
-   public void onMessage(Message msg) {
-      // We are interested in only add_partition events on this table.
-      // So, check message type first.
-      if(msg.getStringProperty(HCatConstants.HCAT_EVENT).equals(HCatConstants.HCAT_ADD_PARTITION_EVENT)){
-          Object obj = (((ObjectMessage)msg).getObject());
-      }
-   }
- </source>
- 
-  <p>You need to have a JMS jar in your classpath to make this work. Additionally,
you need to have a JMS provider’s jar in your classpath. HCatalog is tested with ActiveMQ
as a JMS provider, although any JMS provider can be used. ActiveMQ can be obtained from: http://activemq.apache.org/activemq-550-release.html

 <title>Notification for a Set of Partitions</title>
 
-<p>Sometimes a user wants to wait until a collection of partitions is finished. For
example, you may want to start processing after all partitions for a day are done. However,
HCatalog has no notion of collections or hierarchies of partitions. To support this, HCatalog
allows data writers to signal when they are finished writing a collection of partitions. Data
readers may wait for this signal before beginning to read.</p>
