Semarchy xDI allows to work with HBase to produce fully customized Data Flows.

The database structure can be entirely reversed in Metadata and then used in Mappings and Processes to design and adapt the business rules to meet the user’s requirements.

Supported Features

Common Features

Feature Description

HBase server operations

The Component allows to:

  • create and drop namespaces

  • create, drop, enable, disable or truncate tables

HBase data operations

The Component allows to:

  • insert data

A transaction mechanism has been implemented to allow the user to optionally treat batch of data without being affected by rows newly created in parallel. This offers the possibility to fix a timestamp and treat only data inserted before this time.

Joins / Lookup

The connector allows to join two HBase tables based on their Row Key. This allows to retrieve only the rows from which the Row Key exists in the joined table. It therefore gives the possibility to perform 'lookups' on HBase tables.
