Can we store the unstrurtured data like logs and semi structured data like xml json in aster database as file without creating any table? In general is it possible to store any data in aster database without creating table, like we do in HDFS(hadoop)?
A few thing here:
Does anyone has some insight about INPUT_FORMAT and SERDE specifications in table_from_Afs(). Aster manual does list some of supported specifications but does not exactly tell scenarios where each one could be used.
