Subject [Hadoop Wiki] Update of "Hbase/JRuby" by Tim Dysinger
Date Mon, 12 May 2008 20:43:06 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Hadoop Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by Tim Dysinger:

New page:
== Accessing HBase trunk from JRuby 1.1.1 ==

This page describes the process of connecting to HBase from JRuby.  The code mostly follows
the [http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/Hbase/FAQ#1 Can someone give an example of basic API-usage
going against hbase?] example listed in the HBase FAQ.

== Start HBase ==

bin/hbase master start

== Get JRuby 1.1.1 ==

curl -O http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/jruby/jruby-complete/1.1.1/jruby-complete-1.1.1.jar
wget http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/jruby/jruby-complete/1.1.1/jruby-complete-1.1.1.jar

== Set your CLASSPATH ==

export CLASSPATH=`java -jar jruby-complete-1.1.1.jar -e "puts Dir.glob('{.,build,lib}/*.jar').join(':')"`

== The Code ==

Once you've got that set it's as simple as just translating the Java on the FAQ page to JRuby.

The code below creates a table, puts some data in it, fetches that data back out and then
deletes the table.

Save and run the example as "helloworld.rb" and run it with 'jruby' from the base of HBase
svn trunk.

java -jar jruby-complete-1.1.1.jar helloworld.rb

or open an interactive shell 'jirb' and paste it in

java -jar jruby-complete-1.1.1.jar -S jirb

#!/usr/bin/env jruby

print "The fetched row contains the value '#{data_str}'"
