Abstract:


Lately, column-based database (CDB) has been considered as a standard solution dealing with the big data. But there is no standard translation mechanism mapping from Relational Database (RDB) to CDB. In this paper, we proposed a mechanism translating RDB to CDB. We use HBase as our CDB platform. HBase is a column-based distributed database management system built on Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and has been considered as the typical column-based database on HDFS. In addition, we build a search engine for Taiwan academic journals using our translation mechanism.
