Object data type hierarchy is expressed by putting '.' characters between object names, as described here
I was wondering how this would affect fields in a document that have '.' characters between them but are not meant to be interpreted as hierarchical objects... just plain strings.
- Is it recommended to avoid fields with '.' characters?
- Is it possible to define a mapping template for my document that can distinguish between field names that ought to be interpreted as objects from those that must be interpreted as plain strings? - perhaps the regex option described here is a path I should take.
