I filed HBASE-6522. It is a trivial change to make locks and leases available to coprocessors.
So checkAndSet type operations can then be implemented via coprocessor endpoints: lock row,
check, fail or update, unlock row.

Since the patch is so simple I'll commit that soon (to 0.94.2 and 0.96)

There is no such functionality currently, and there is no good way to simulate that.

Currently that cannot even be done with a coprocessor endpoint, because region coprocessors
have no way to create a region lock (just checked the code).
(That is something we have to change I think - I will create an issue once the Jira system
is back from the walk in the park).

Subject: CheckAndAppend Feature

Hi HBase community:

I checked the HTable API, it has checkAndPut and checkAndDelete but I'm
looking for checkAndAppend. Is there a way to simulate similarly?
For instance, I want to check the last 32 bytes of a value (let assume that
it has 128 bytes in total) in a column before appending atomically some
values into it.
