             Summary: Add how to rename a table in th docbook 
                 Key: HBASE-8574
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8574
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: documentation
    Affects Versions: 0.95.0, 0.94.7
            Reporter: Matteo Bertozzi
            Assignee: Matteo Bertozzi
             Fix For: 0.98.0, 0.94.8, 0.95.1

Add a section "how to rename a table" in the doc book.

The current easy solution without adding extra code in 94/95 is to use snapshots
hbase shell> disable 'tableName'
hbase shell> snapshot 'tableName', 'tableSnapshot'
hbase shell> clone 'tableSnapshot', 'newTableName'
hbase shell> delete_snapshot 'tableSnapshot'

void rename(HBaseAdmin admin, String oldTableName, String newTableName) {
    String snapshotName = randomName();
    admin.snapshot(snapshotName, oldTableName);
    admin.cloneSnapshot(snapshotName, newTableName);
