Re: Is hbase has default secondary index feature?

I'm guessing you've already seen http://hbase.apache.org/0.94/book/secondary.indexes.html which basically is telling you that you'll need to have a second table whose rowkey is your "secondary index" and is only being used to find the rowkey needed for the actual table. The coprocessor strategy, as I understand it, is to just formalize & automate the "dual-write secondary index" strategy. Good luck and happy Hadooping!
