How to update an HBase row key

New Contributor

I know that technically speaking updates in HBase do not happen, but is there a way to change the row key of certain rows without modifying the values for that row? I am trying to find the best way to perform a get, modify the row key, and then put the row back into place with the modified row key. It would also be nice if the timestamp could stay the same as the original . . . Does anyone have any examples of how to perform something like this?
