Re: How to remove entire row at the server side?
Just in case you didn't know there is a 'classpath' command in the Accumulo
shell which should list your custom jar. It's handy to verify that it was
loaded. I think there might also be a log entry if you have access to them.
I've also found it useful to use 'jar tf <filename> on the Accumulo nodes
to verify the jar file contents. Sometimes I've deployed the wrong version
of a jar file.
