Yes, you can select which HBase column qualifiers are made available to Hive and using what name. This is the column mapping Serde property. See http://hortonworks.com/blog/using-hive-to-interact-with-hbase-part-2/ for a working (less complex) example.
Hive External Table Pointing to HBASE
I have a Hbase table called
Client_Txn with column famlies
Cf1 (val1, val2)
Cf2 (val3, val4)
Can I create a Hive Table pointing to this structure
I basically want to create the Hive Table that refers to this external table and bring in only
Cf1_Val (from Cf1:val1)
Cf2_Val (from Cf2:val3)
Is it possible ?
