             Summary: Extend hbase_docker to handle more useful use cases
                 Key: HBASE-12721
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-12721
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Dima Spivak
            Assignee: Dima Spivak


Some simple work on using HBase with Docker was committed into /dev-support as "hbase_docker;"
all this did was stand up a standalone cluster from source and start a shell. Now seems like
a good time to extend this to be useful for applications that could actual benefit the community,
especially around testing. Some ideas:

- Integration testing would be much more accessible if people could stand up distributed HBase
clusters on a single host machine in a couple minutes and run our awesome hbase-it suite against
it.
- Binary compatibility testing of an HBase client is easiest when standing up an HBase cluster
can be done once and then different client source/binary permutations run against it.
- Upgrade testing, and especially rolling upgrade testing, doesn't have any upstream automation
on build.apache.org, in part because it's a pain to set up x-node clusters on Apache infrastructure.

This proposal, whether it stays under /dev-support or moves out into it's own top-level module
("hbase-docker" would conveniently fit the existing schema :-)), strives to create a simple
framework for deploying "distributed," multi-container Apache HBase clusters.
