tablenames

List names of database tables in Apache Cassandra database

Description

example

t = tablenames(conn) returns a list that contains the names of Cassandra® database tables and their corresponding keyspaces of the Cassandra database.

example

t = tablenames(conn,keyspace) returns a list that contains the names of Cassandra database tables in the specified keyspace of the Cassandra database.

Examples

collapse all

Using a Cassandra® database connection and the Apache Cassandra database C++ interface, return the names of all database tables in the Cassandra database.

Create a Cassandra database connection using the configured data source CassandraDataSource and a blank user name and password. The apacheCassandra function returns conn as a connection object.

datasource = "CassandraDataSource";
username = "";
password = "";
conn = apacheCassandra(datasource,username,password);

Return the names of all database tables in the Cassandra database using the Cassandra database connection. t is a table that contains the names of all Cassandra database tables and their corresponding keyspaces.

t = tablenames(conn);

Display the first few rows of the returned data.

head(t)
ans=8×2 table
       Keyspace              Table       
    ______________    ___________________

    "employeedata"    "employees_by_id"  
    "employeedata"    "employees_by_job" 
    "employeedata"    "employees_by_name"
    "system"          "IndexInfo"        
    "system"          "available_ranges" 
    "system"          "batches"          
    "system"          "batchlog"         
    "system"          "built_views"      

The Keyspace variable indicates the keyspace. The Table variable indicates the name of the Cassandra database table in the corresponding keyspace.

Close the Cassandra database connection.

close(conn)

Using an Apache Cassandra® database connection and the Apache Cassandra database C++ interface, return the names of all database tables in a specific keyspace of the Cassandra database—in this case, the employeedata keyspace.

Create a Cassandra database connection using the configured data source CassandraDataSource and a blank user name and password. The apacheCassandra function returns conn as a connection object.

datasource = "CassandraDataSource";
username = "";
password = "";
conn = apacheCassandra(datasource,username,password);

Return and display all database tables in the employeedata keyspace of the Cassandra database by using the Cassandra database connection. t is a string array that contains the names of all database tables in the employeedata keyspace.

keyspace = "employeedata";
t = tablenames(conn,keyspace)
t = 3×1 string
    "employees_by_id"
    "employees_by_job"
    "employees_by_name"

Close the Cassandra database connection.

close(conn)

Input Arguments

collapse all

Apache Cassandra database connection, specified as a connection object.

Keyspace, specified as a character vector or string scalar. If you do not know the keyspace, then access the Keyspaces property of the connection object using dot notation to view the keyspaces in the Cassandra database.

Example: "employeedata"

Data Types: char | string

Output Arguments

collapse all

Database table names in the Cassandra database, specified as a string array or table. If you specify a keyspace in the keyspace input argument, the tablenames function returns a string array that contains all the database table names in the specified keyspace of the Cassandra database. If you do not specify a keyspace, the tablenames function returns a table with the Keyspace and Table variables. The Keyspace variable is a string array that contains all keyspaces in the Cassandra database. The Table variable is a string array that contains the names of all database tables in the Cassandra database for their corresponding keyspaces.
