Features of HareDB HBase Client > HBase Table with Hive Table


Columns (column family + qualifier) in HBase table is dynamic growing up. You might be interested in some columns not all columns. So, to create Hive table is good way to solve this. However, if you have a lot of Hive tables, here comes another issue. It is hard to get understanding which Hive table is mapped to which HBase table.


HareDB HBase Client not only does the organize UI for you but also let you query data very conveniently. You can use “select sql” to hive table directly. In other words, these hive table is like “view” (view concept in RDB) of HBase table.
Of course we also provide an interface for you to create a Hive table.
