[DISCUSS] Namespace Delimiter
Francis Liu 2013-05-07, 23:38
Hi,

As part of the namespace patch (HBASE-8015). We will need a delimiter to separate namespace name from table name. The obvious choice here would be a dot '.'. Since dot is presently a valid character for table names that would require users to migrate their tables (ie renaming tables) as part of upgrade to 0.96. Another option is to use a different delimiter to avoid the table migration altogether. Thoughts?
