-Getting HBaseStorage() to work in Pig
Botelho, Andrew 2013-08-23, 20:41
I am trying to use the function HBaseStorage() in my Pig code in order to load an HBase table into Pig.
When I run my code, I get this error:
ERROR 2998: Unhandled internal error. org/apache/hadoop/hbase/filter/WritableByteArrayComparable
I believe the PIG_CLASSPATH needs to be extended to include the classpath for loading HBase, but I am not sure how to do this. I've tried several export commands in the unix shell to change the PIG_CLASSPATH, but nothing seems to be working.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
