Subject Is HTable threadsafe and cachable?
Date Mon, 04 Apr 2011 07:45:01 GMT

We are using hbase to power a web application. The current
implementation of the data access classes maintain a static HTable
instance to read and write. The reason being getting hold of HTable
instance looks costly. 

In this scenario the HTable instances could more or less be perpetually
cached. Is it reasonable to assume that HTables do not have some
inherent timeout and are threadsafe across gets and puts?

Thanks and regards,
