Subject Re: In Windows, cannot capture HBase prompt('hbase(main):001:0>') from neither standard output nor standard error using process API
Date Fri, 14 Aug 2015 09:32:46 GMT
Hi Nick,

Thanks for your reply and letting me know about options to interact with HBase client;

Please find my use case and requirement in detail;

Requirement: Create a simple GUI editor using C# for HBase shell console in Windows platform;

As a part of my learning about Hadoop and its ecosystems, I created a GUI editor application
for Hive CLI successfully with the following steps;  
1. From my C# application, programmatically I will start the Hive CLI in Command line, read
the output and render it in my own GUI editor.

2. All these interactions I am able to do from my application which interacts with Hive’s
running shell window

Similarly I tried for HBase. Here I can able to execute my command and retrieve output with
HBase, but HBase prompt(hbase(main):001:0>) alone not received in the output(i.e. prompt
is not received from stdout or stderr of command line process of HBase )

Hive CLI - http://archive.cloudera.com/cdh4/cdh/4/hive/language_manual/cli.html

Please suggest me any solution or a work around to get HBase prompt along with output

Hi Dinesh,

I'm not sure what you mean by "process API". Are you launching the hbase
shell as an external process? Would be better to use an HBase client. We
have a nice one in Java. We also have REST and Thrift gateways, which are
launched as separate processes. There's also Apache Phoenix, which will
give you JDBC access to HBase, though again, it's Java only at this point.
Maybe one of these will work for you?

Good luck,
