Subject Re: Batch returned value and exception handling.
Date Thu, 14 Mar 2013 17:52:27 GMT
Hi Amit,

Just take a look at the processBatchCallback method in HConnectionManager.

There you will see how the result is populated, and when an exception
is returned.

In your example below, if you look at the content of the returned
array, you should see one cell with the result of the increment, and
one cell with a Throwable into it.
