Thanks for the reply.
Yes, for HBase I loaded sample data from 2 files with different metadata/DDL into a single HBase table with single column family using ImportTSV.
But I am not sure if a single table,single column family schema will give the optimal performance. What other design can be implemented in HBase?
For Hive, if the table DDL/columns are not fixed i.e different for different files, how we can use a single Hive table, even if we partition it.
It will need to have same schema, right?
