Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5548) Add ability to get a table in the shell
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2012 21:28:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5548?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13257829#comment-13257829

Jesse Yates commented on HBASE-5548:

bq. Seems like an issue?

yeah, I think so. Odd that I missed that, though I may have made some changes and not done
all the testing I should have. I'll take a look.

bq. Also in the help, talks about a table reference without explaining what it is (there is
no mention of what this is in the general help either it seems). It could be confusing talking
about a 't' w/o saying where it came from?

Yeah, that can be confusing. I'll clean it up a bit.

bq. In the rest of the shell columns are a combo of family and qualifier delimited by the
':'. You are changing that w/ the above.

Fair enough, though I would argue this is cleaner, but I switch it over for this patch.

Thanks for giving it a spin stack!

> 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.
