Storm can't write to Hbase in DRPC mode, java.lang.NullPointerException

avatar
Contributor

Hi ,

I am trying to write Storm output to HBase. It's works fine when run in local mode, but when i switch to cluster mode, it got the error:

java.lang.NullPointerException at org.apache.hadoop.hbase.client.HTable.finishSetup(HTable.java:351...

I've also exported jar path in HADOOP variables, before to execute topology:

export HADOOP_CLASSPATH=$HADOOP_CLASSPATH:usr/hdp/current/hbase-client/lib/*.jar

without good results, same error is showed. Have any idea to solve it?

Thanks in advance. Giuseppe

Any chance you can edit your question to include the complete Java stack trace, please?

Hi Emil and Josh, thanks for your reply. I use hbase-client version 1.1.1 and I've developed a custom HbaseBolt that implemented IRichBolt interface. I have included hbase-site.xml in project to read configuration of cluster. In fact, when I create the configuration and then the connection, I read all configuration correcly:

Configuration config = HBaseConfiguration.create();
connection = ConnectionFactory.createConnection(config);

I've also checked that the xml file is added to jar root so should be read when topology is running. As write above, it works fine in local mode but issued in DRPC. This a trace of log that I can see throught Storm UI:

Do you have any idea to solve it?

Thanks again,

No Emil, I don't set hbase.rootdir and zookeeper.znode.parent in storm config because, I think, these are read by xml. I try to do it.

I have create custom hbaseBolt because I need to customize and apply some operation before to store in hbase and this cannot be do used SimpleHbaseMapper and HbaseBolt integrated in Bolt.
