Subject Re: How does HBase ensure strong consistency?
Date Fri, 23 Jul 2010 19:59:36 GMT
See http://hbase.apache.org/docs/r0.89.20100621/acid-semantics.html

But, "Please note that this is not true _across rows_ for multirow
batch mutations." is actually untrue for 0.89 since
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2353 (wasn't reflected in
that document).

Hope that helps,
