Subject Re: Talking to HBase via tcp/socket
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2007 18:42:45 GMT
What's the motivation for using straight a straight TCP socket rather  
than REST? The motivation behind producing a REST interface in the  
first place is that since the client still lives in Java, then we get  
to take advantage of all the built-in Java client work that's been  
done. If you're looking for a more lightweight way to interact with  
HBase (since REST can be a little heavy at times), then rather than  
go the HQL route, I would suggest exploring building a Thrift servlet  
that mimics the structure of the REST servlet. This is something  
that's been discussed as a next step for HBase interoperability.
