Subject Re: How to make a CGI with HBase?
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2011 05:06:52 GMT
Java servlets for web development with databases is a learning curve.  HBase is a learning
curve. You might want to learn one at a time :)  If you code the site in Java/JSPs, you want
a JDBC driver for HBase. You can code calls to HBase directly in a JSP without writing Java.
