Re: How to remove entire row at the server side?
Keith, you are my hero!  From tests using various column family configs to
test various configs, it appears to be working like a charm.  Now I'm
working on the IteratorOptions part so the expirationTimestamp column
family name and datetime format can be set at the installation time of the

Many, many thanks Keith, your example really helps me understand row-based
iterators much better.

Thanks again to everyone else for your assistance as well.  Accumulo has
such a great community!

Kind regards,
