Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5548) Add ability to get a table in the shell
Date Mon, 12 Mar 2012 21:48:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5548?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13227944#comment-13227944

stack commented on HBASE-5548:
------------------------------

Looks good.

Does stuff work as it used to after this patch goes in?  Can you do the old dumb:

get 'tablename', 'yadda', 'yadda'....

still?

On get_table, should it just be table?  'status' dumps out status, 'version', dumps out 'version'.
 Maybe it should stay get_table, because it returns something you can catch into a variable?

Oh, this is nice:

{code}
+  hbase> t1 = create 't1', 'f1'
{code}

How do i add a filter? Is it the same old: t.scan, {STARTROW => 'xyz'} or something?

Patch is looking good I think.  Introduces a nice bit of functionality...

> Currently, all the commands that operate on a table in the shell first have to take the
table as name as input. 
> There are two main considerations:
> * It is annoying to have to write the table name every time, when you should just be
able to get a reference to a table
> * the current implementation is very wasteful - it creates a new HTable for each call
(but reuses the connection since it uses the same configuration)
> We should be able to get a handle to a single HTable and then operate on that.
