Super Guru

Is there any documentation available on HDP Spark HBase connector?


Super Guru

I am looking for the same information. Can someone also share the following pieces of information

  • Sample code using Spark HBase Connector
  • Link to latest documentation
  • Is this GA yet?


Spark HBase is in technical preview with Spark 1.6.1 and HDP 2.4.2.

has anyone written a demo or app on this one?

Is this technical preview of "Spark HBase Connector" available on latest Sandbox? I believe latest Sandbox is 2.4.0 and technical preview available on 2.4.2? And Github documentation steps to be followed to get this working?

New Contributor

Thanks Sandeep. I will check it out!

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

mvn clean package test

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

that is without using --repositories

i am developing in a closed offline environment and cannot download from the internet the connector...

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