hbase supports storing pdf documents in the table column

Contributor

Hi All,

 

      I have some pdf files and each pdf file information like pdf creation date,pdf_id etc. and need to store pdf and its information in the hbase table. 

 

      And using java code i need to write new documents and read inserted documents.

 

      I am not found any documentation related on this in the internet.

 

      Please help me.

 

Thanks & Regards,

J.Ganesh Kumar

Master Guru
HBase is agnostic about data-types and just stores/interprets everything as mere bytes.

If your documents are in the single MB range or lower, you can consider using the HBase MOB feature which is designed for such storage: https://www.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/latest/topics/admin_hbase_mob.html
