HBase is a client to HDFS. 0.94 defaults to 1.0.4, 0.98 and a build against 2.2.0, and 1.2.1 (I think).
HDFS clients are not compatible across versions, and hence HBase should be built from source against your specific version of Hadoop.

Subject: Re: Getting exceptions in fresh installment of hbase

Thanks a lot for the analysis  , so nothing to worry about ?
I did not built hbase from source.
I simply downloaded tars from hbase and hadoop download page(  hbase from
"stable" directory ( i.e 0.94.17 ) and hadoop from "stable1" directory (
i.e. 1.2.1) ).
Do i need to build from source ?
If yes , is there any guidelines in doing same as i have never used Maven (
i use Ant for build and deployment ).
