RE: Null rowkey with empty get operation
Hi Ben,
      In HBase rowkey exists with KVs only. As in your case there is no KVs in the result, and so no rowkey. What is the use case that you are referring here? When you issued Get with a rowkey and empty result for that , you know the rowkey already right? I mean any specific reason why you try to find the rowkey from the result object?

Subject: Null rowkey with empty get operation

I have following Get code with HBase 0.92.0

Get get = new Get(Bytes.toBytes(rowkey));
Filter filter = new QualifierFilter(CompareOp.NOT_EQUAL, new
Result r = table.get(get);

System.out.println(r);  // (1) prints "keyvalues=NONE"
System.out.println(Bytes.toString(r.getRow()));  // (2) throws

printing out the result shows that all columns in a row was filtered out.
but i still want to print out the row key of the empty result.
But the value of r.getRow() is null

Shouldn't r.getRow() return the rowkey even if the keyvalues are emtpy?
