  The two main client-side entry points are [http://lucene.zones.apache.org:8080/hudson/job/Hadoop-Nightly/javadoc/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/HBaseAdmin.html
HBaseAdmin] and [http://lucene.zones.apache.org:8080/hudson/job/Hadoop-Nightly/javadoc/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/HTable.html
HTable].  Use H!BaseAdmin to create, drop, list, enable and disable tables.  Use it also to
add and drop table column families.  For adding, updating and deleting data, use HTable. 
Here is some pseudo code absent error checking, imports, etc., that creates a table, adds
data, does a fetch of just-added data and then deletes the table.

+ '''3. [#3 Can I fix O!utOfMemoryExceptions in hbase?]'''
+ Out-of-the-box, hbase uses the default JVM heap size.  Set the ''HBASE_HEAPSIZE'' environment
variable in ''${HBASE_HOME}/conf/hbase-env.sh'' if your install needs to run with a larger
heap.  ''HBASE_HEAPSIZE'' is like ''HADOOP_HEAPSIZE'' in that its value is the desired heap
size in MB.  The surrounding '-Xmx' and 'm' needed to make up the maximum heap size java option
are added by the hbase start script (See how ''HBASE_HEAPSIZE'' is used in the ''${HBASE_HOME}/bin/hbase''
script for clarification).
