HBASE JAVA API issues

Master Collaborator

I am running a simple HBASE JAva code to create a table but I am getting this error

I made some changes to your code, it should look like following to work properly:

import java.io.IOException;
import org.apache.hadoop.hbase.util.Bytes;
import org.apache.hadoop.hbase.client.HBaseAdmin;
import org.apache.hadoop.hbase.HBaseConfiguration;
import org.apache.hadoop.hbase.HColumnDescriptor;
import org.apache.hadoop.hbase.HTableDescriptor;
import org.apache.hadoop.hbase.client.Admin;
import org.apache.hadoop.hbase.client.Connection;
import org.apache.hadoop.hbase.client.ConnectionFactory;
import org.apache.hadoop.hbase.TableName;
import org.apache.hadoop.conf.Configuration;

public class CreateHbaseTable {

        public void createtable(String name, String[] colfamily)throws Exception {
                Configuration config = HBaseConfiguration.create();
                config.set("hbase.zookeeper.quorum", "hadoop1,hadoop2");
                config.set("hbase.zookeeper.property.clientPort", "2181");
                config.set("hbase.cluster.distributed", "true");
                config.set("zookeeper.znode.parent", "/hbase-unsecure");
                HBaseAdmin admin = new HBaseAdmin(config);
                HTableDescriptor des = new HTableDescriptor(Bytes.toBytes(name));
                for (int i = 0; i < colfamily.length; i++) {
                        des.addFamily(new HColumnDescriptor(colfamily[i]));
                }
                if (admin.tableExists(name)) {
                        System.out.println("Table already exist");
                } else {
                        admin.createTable(des);
                        System.out.println("Table: " + name + " Sucessfully created");
                }
        }

        public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception {
                CreateHbaseTable op = new CreateHbaseTable();
                String tablename = "Acadgild";
                String[] familys = { "Emp_name", "sal" };
                op.createtable(tablename, familys);
        }
}

.

Now in order to compile and run this code please do this:

# export CLASSPATH=`hbase classpath`:.
# javac CreateHbaseTable.java 
# java CreateHbaseTable

OUTPUT:
.
.
2018-06-09 00:40:18,504 INFO  [main] client.HBaseAdmin: Created Acadgild
Table: Acadgild Sucessfully created

Either the zookeeper or znode is incorrect.
* parent znode for hdp is generally /hbase-unsecure or /hbase-secure (not /hbase)

* check you are giving the right zookeeper address while connecting.

If you are not specifying them manually, then make sure that right hbase-site.xml is in your application classpath.

Master Collaborator

where in this code I will specify the parent znode? are there any examples for HBASE JAVA api ?

also I am specifying the hbase-site.xml in classpath as follows :

java  -classpath /usr/hdp/2.6.4.0-91/hbase/lib/hbase-client-1.1.2.2.6.4.0-91.jar:/usr/hdp/2.6.4.0-91/phoenix/*:/usr/hdp/2.6.4.0-91/hbase/conf/hbase-site.xml:.  CreateHbaseTable

HTableDescriptor des = new HTableDescriptor(Bytes.toBytes(name));
for(int i=0;i<colfamily.length;i++){
des.addFamily(new HColumnDescriptor(colfamily[i]));
}
if(admin.tableExists(name)){
System.out.println("Table already exist");
}
else{
admin.createTable(des);
System.out.println("Table: "+name+ " Sucessfully created");
}
}
public static void main(String args[]) throws MasterNotRunningException,
                               ZooKeeperConnectionException,IOException{
CreateHbaseTable op = new CreateHbaseTable();
String tablename = "Acadgild";
String[] familys = {"Emp_name","sal"};
op.createtable(tablename, familys);
}
}

Configuration config = HBaseConfiguration.create();

Either you can add them config.set("zookeeper.znode.parent","/hbase-unsecure") and config.set("hbase.zookeeper.quorum","<server-name>)
Or you can directly include server hbase-site.xml in your application classpath so that HBaseConfiguration.create() will add them automatically.

Master Collaborator

I tried to add it but its giving compilation error.

I showed the command using server based hbase-site.xml. . why its not adding it?

Configuration config = HBaseConfiguration.create();
config.set("zookeeper.znode.parent","/hbase-unsecure");

you can't keep statement outside of method or constructor except declaration, static blocks in java.

Master Collaborator

this code is giving me compilation error ,whats wrong?

You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root


You need to add the directory containing hbase-site.xml that you want, not the file itself. This is how Java works. You specify jar files, an asterisk wildcard, or a directory.
