Is there any documentation available on HDP Spark HBase connector?

Is the spark hbase connector GA in HDP 2.5.3 ?

Expert Contributor

Yes. For Spark 1.6 it is GA in HDP 2.5.3. The documentation is available from the Github site for a given SHC release tag. That is the source of truth.

I try to use in HDP 2.4.0 and cannot run the samples files. I have a Cluster HDP 2.4

is there a way to use the connector offline? is the connector included in HDP 2.6?

that is without using --repositories

if not, can anyone provide another way of pyspark-hbase connection?
