Step 1: Setting up MapR-DB Binary Table Mapping

To use the Hue HBase application to access MapR-DB binary tables, you need to set the hbase.table.namespace.mappings property. This property allows you to map Apache HBase table names to MapR-DB tables. Set this property in the core-site.xml file as shown in Mapping to HBase Table Namespaces.

In the following example, the hbase.table.namespace.mappings property is set so that any flat table name, such as mytable, is treated as a MapR-DB table in the directory /tables_dir/mytable.

<property>
  <name>hbase.table.namespace.mappings</name>
  <value>*:/tables_dir</value>
</property>

Once you finish enabling table mapping in the core-site.xml file, start (or restart) the HBase thrift server so the changes will take effect.

maprcli node services -name hbasethrift -action start -nodes node001
