Subject Re: Inserting data in Hbase Phoenix using the thrift api
Date Sun, 11 May 2014 03:33:56 GMT

you can also decouple hbase from your app by streaming data via a simple
unix pipe, unix socket or tcp socket,
just create a  socket listener  in Java on hbase side (which uses phoenix
JDBC to insert data into hbase)
