I’m struggling to run the put_multiple_columns.rb script to import data into hbase.

I’ve tried using java org.jruby.Main, and hbase org.jruby.Main followed by the script.

My edited scripts changed top lines from

import ‘blah’


include Java import blah

but this did not work.

Most recently, I’ve downloaded the example again from the site and try to run it like :

fred:~ will$ hbase org.jruby.Main ~/src/learning/7_dbs_in_7_weeks/hbase/put_multiple_columns.rb NoMethodError: undefined method `import’ for main:Object (root) at /Users/will/src/learning/7_dbs_in_7_weeks/hbase/put_multiple_columns.rb:9

Any ideas?

In the end, I hacked the scripts and the following seems to work..

def jbytes( *args ) { |arg| arg.to_s.to_java_bytes } end

puts( @hbase)

conf = table = conf, “wiki” )

p = *jbytes( “Home” ) )

p.add( *jbytes( “text”, “”, “Hello world” ) ) p.add( *jbytes( “revision”, “author”, “jimbo” ) ) p.add( *jbytes( “revision”, “comment”, “my first edit” ) )

table.put( p )
