Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6692) [shell] Cannot describe '.META.' or '-ROOT-' tables
Date Thu, 30 Aug 2012 04:33:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6692?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13444669#comment-13444669

Aditya Kishore commented on HBASE-6692:

I had the same confusion when looking for the appropriate API. 

I too, looked at the member function first and was thinking if there was another function
which checks both and was lucky enough to keep looking before deciding to write one myself
