Yes I was having this doubt abt ur use case. I assumed ur use case is like u know the qualifier names in advance. :)

Yes I was having this doubt. So if you know exactly the qualifier names in advance you can use this scan way.
Else filter only u can use.
QualifierFilter just checks the qualifier name only which CF it is part of is not checked.
So the similar qualifier names in both T and S will get filtered out.
You can create a simple filter of your own and plugin the same into HBase and use? Here you can pass the CF name also and in the filterKeyValue() u can consider the CF name too. I think it should be an easy job :)

Thank you for your answer. The QualifierFilter on T specifies a minimum
value not one that has to be matched exactly, so merely adding a specific
qualifier value directly to the scan does not work if I understand
