Subject [jira] Created: (HBASE-3541) REST Multi Gets
Date Thu, 17 Feb 2011 01:01:24 GMT
REST Multi Gets

                 Key: HBASE-3541
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3541
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: rest
            Reporter: Elliott Clark
            Priority: Minor

Users currently using the REST interface do not have a way to ask for multiple rows within
one http call.

For my use case I want to get a set of rows that I know the key before hand.  It's a very
small percentage of my table and may not be contiguous so the scanner is not the right use-case
for me.  Currently the http overhead is the largest percentage of my processing time.

Ideally I'd like to create a patch that would act very similar to:

GET /table/?row[]="rowkey"&row[]="rowkey_two"

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
   "Rows":[ << Array of results equivalent to a single get >>]

This should be pretty backward compatible.  As it's just making the row key into a query string.
