hbase-maven-plugin

A maven plugin that starts/stops a mini HBase cluster.

This plugin is useful for integration testing code that interacts with an HBase cluster. Typically, you will bind the start goal to your pre-integration-test phase and the stop goal to the post-integration-test phase of the maven build lifecycle.

Selecting a Hadoop backend

This plugin can be run against multiple Hadoop backends. Version 1.0.10-cdh4 will run with a CDH4-based cluster; Version 1.0.9-hadoop1 will use an Apache Hadoop 1.x / HBase 0.92 backend.

To run with 1.0.10-hadoop1, you must:

  • Set umask 0022
  • Disable IPv6 in your maven process: export MAVEN_OPTS="-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true"
