Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-14750) HBaseConfiguration.create() doesn't load properties
Date Tue, 03 Nov 2015 21:35:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14750?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14988173#comment-14988173

stack commented on HBASE-14750:

bq. I have setup the hbase-site.xml in the HBASE_CONF_DIR; the settings in this file are not
picked up in my application.

... because you have not set the environment variable HBASE_CONF_DIR in your environment....
and then your application on start, does not add HBASE_CONF_DIR to its CLASSPATH as the bin/hbase
script does? Thanks [~nielsbasjes]

>            Reporter: Niels Basjes
> While writing an application that uses HBase I ran into the problem that although I have
setup the hbase-site.xml in the {{HBASE_CONF_DIR}}; the settings in this file are not picked
up in my application.
> In several places I find instructions to include things like the {{hbase.zookeeper.quorum}}
in a properties file and the explicitly set these value from within the application (I have
actually done this in the past quite a few times).
> Although this works I expect the system to automatically pickup the settings I have installed
already which are picked up by tools like the hbase shell and pig.
> So I ended up writing this helper method:
> {code:java}
>     public static Configuration createConfiguration() {
>         String hbaseConfDir = System.getenv("HBASE_CONF_DIR");
>         if (hbaseConfDir == null) {
>             hbaseConfDir = "/etc/hbase/conf";
>         }
>         Configuration conf = HBaseConfiguration.create();
>         conf.addResource(new Path(hbaseConfDir + "/hbase-site.xml"));
>         return conf;
>     }
> {code}
> I expect HBaseConfiguration.create() to give me a working config in an environment where
everything for all the other HBase clients has already been setup correctly.
> My proposal is to change the HBaseConfiguration.create() to effectively include what
my helper method does.
