Seven Databases in Seven Weeks -- HBASE

OK, I've been volunteered (set up) to lead the discussion on 08/08/2012.

Chapter 4 of the book--as much of days 1 and 2 as is practical.

I'll be installing HBASE on an Ubuntu 12.04 system and will post information/challenges between now and 08/08.

This message will also be on the message board, so if you are on another OS, please post your questions/experiences on the message board.

Hmm. Ubuntu may not be quite as easy as Greg's experience on Mac OS.

I first tried the latest 'stable' hbase-0.92.1,
However, it didn't seem to let me create a table and when I tried to run the stop-hbase script it just kept going.

I downloaded the hbase-0.90.6 version and did the HBase Network Setting from page 97.
(Basically everything is local network) This allowed me to get started with the examples in the book.

**** Set up details ****
Download the hbase version you want from one of the apache mirrors.
(I used http://mirror.symnds....­)

Extract the files.
Edit the file and set the appropriate JAVA_HOME value (needs to be at least Java 6).
[Does it NEED to be a sun Java? I happened to use one--and I'm using Java 7]

Edit the hbase-site.xml to set the network properties.
