Apache HBase is the Hadoop database, a distributed, scalable, big data store. It is a wide-column store based on Apache Hadoop and on concepts of BigTable .
You can connect to Apache HBase through the following interfaces:
ray2501: I write a Tcl extension HBaseClient-Tcl and play Apache HBase (standalone mode) REST Interface on my Ubuntu 14.04 VM.
HBaseClient-Tcl is a record to log my Apache HBase REST interface study.
Apache Phoenix provides a JDBC driver and SQL access to HBase.
So idea is that you can use TclBlend or TclJBlend to call JDBC API and use Apache Pheonix to access HBase. I use TDBCJDBC to verify this idea, it is OK.
