[hbase] RESTful interface
-------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-2068
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2068
             Project: Hadoop
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: contrib/hbase
            Reporter: stack
            Priority: Minor


A RESTful interface would be one means of making hbase accessible to clients that are not
java.  It might look something like the below:

+ An HTTP GET of  http://MASTER:PORT/ outputs the master's attributes: online meta regions,
list of tables, etc.: i.e. what you see now when you go to http://MASTER:PORT/master.jsp.
+ An HTTP GET of http://MASTER:PORT/TABLENAME: 200 if tables exists and HTableDescription
(mimetype: text/plain or text/xml) or 401 if no such table.  HTTP DELETE would drop the table.
 HTTP PUT would add one.
+ An HTTP GET of http://MASTER:PORT/TABLENAME/ROW: 200 if row exists and 401 if not.
+ An HTTP GET of http://MASTER:PORT/TABLENAME/ROW/COLUMNFAMILY: HColumnDescriptor (mimetype:
text/plain or text/xml) or 401 if no such table.
+ An HTTP GET of http://MASTER:PORT/TABLENAME/ROW/COLUMNNAME/: 200 and latest version (mimetype:
binary/octet-stream) or 401 if no such cell. HTTP DELETE would delete the cell.  HTTP PUT
would add a new version.
+ An HTTP GET of http://MASTER:PORT/TABLENAME/ROW/COLUMNNAME/TIMESTAMP: 200 (mimetype: binary/octet-stream)
or 401 if no such cell. HTTP DELETE would remove.  HTTP PUT would put this record.
+ Browser originally goes against master but master then redirects to the hosting region server
to serve, update, delete, etc. the addressed cell
