Subject Re: how to work Htable connection
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2012 00:54:52 GMT
For your first question, see Section 9.3.1 on
http://hbase.apache.org/book.html which says "When creating HTable
instances, it is advisable to use the same HBaseConfiguration
instance. This will ensure sharing of ZooKeeper and socket instances
to the RegionServers which is usually what you want."

For your second question, the client connects to zookeeper to lookup
the location of the regionserver holding "-ROOT-" table. Once this is
determined, client reads the "-ROOT-" table to determine location of
the ".META." table. The ".META." table contains each user table region
entry. The client identifies the region holding the row key range it
is interested in ... and then directly contacts that region server.
So - zookeeper is used by a client only to lookup where the "-ROOT-"
table is located ... and from that point on, it directly calls the
region servers.
