Subject TEXT Data type in Phoenix?
Date Wed, 30 Mar 2016 20:57:04 GMT
Is it possible to have the equivalent of the SQL data type "TEXT" with Phoenix? The reason
being, my data has columns with unspecified text length. If I go with a varchar,  loading
the entire CSV file into the database may fail if one entry is too long.

Maybe, however, there is really no reason to use TEXT with Phoenix? Perhaps just using VARCHAR
with a very long size is equivalent in terms of performance and memory usage (given that Phoenix
is HBase under the hood)?
