Subject Re: hbase shell scripting

Will this work for you?

$ echo "create 'table1'" |./bin/hbase shell
$ echo "create 'table2'"|./bin/hbase shell

or I was thinking that you could put the below into a script and run it:

create 'table1'

but looking at bin/hirb.rb, when you pass a script to shell to run,
most of the hbase aspects of the jirb shell have not been put up yet.
This we should fix.  Meantime, study how ./bin/hirb.rb works and do
sufficient initialization in your own script or just write jruby using
the bin/hirb.rb content for example.

Let me know if you'd like more help.
