Date Sun, 10 Aug 2008 22:50:29 GMT

The following page has been changed by Michael Gottesman:
http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/Hbase/JSONRest

  This is a question that I get asked a lot. Why JSON? Why not Thrift? Why not Protocol Buffers?

By using JSON as your message format, you allow for easy interoperability with any/all platforms
currently in the marketplace. Thus you maximize your potential user base through familiarity,
ease of use, and parser availability for the end user.

  It will be deprecated once JSONRest is completely finished. Its current wikipage is here:
{}. If you would like to contribute to the construction of JSONRest, please visit HBase Issue
XXXX, located at the following url: {}
- == Important Usage Notes *IMPORTANT READ THIS* ==
+ == Important General Usage Notes *READ THIS* ==
  Please read this before you go further to the usage section. I envision two sorts of users
of JSONRest at the moment: the normal database user, and the timestamp database user.
