After some investigation, I found that Phoenix 5.0.0 is only compatible with HBase 2.0.0.

In 2.0.1 and onward, compare(final Cell a, final Cell b) in CellComparatorImpl was changed to final: https://github.com/apache/hbase/blame/master/hbase-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/CellComparatorImpl.java#L67

This change affected HBase 2.0.1 and 2.0.2.

As Phoenix 5.0.0 relies on this behavior: https://github.com/apache/phoenix/blob/8a819c6c3b4befce190c6ac759f744df511de61d/phoenix-core/src/main/java/org/apache/phoenix/hbase/index/covered/data/IndexMemStore.java#L84

Fortunately, this is fixed in Phoenix master: https://github.com/apache/phoenix/blob/master/phoenix-core/src/main/java/org/apache/phoenix/hbase/index/covered/data/IndexMemStore.java#L82

The issue should be resolved in the next release of Phoenix.

The problem is that I wrongly assumed HBase's version numbers to be following semver and that a patch release would not introduce breaking changes.

Did you check versions of HBase that exists in your classpath?

Is this a compatibility issue with Guava?
It isn't an exception which incompatible with Guava

Thanks for taking a look, Jaanai!

Is my method of installing HBase and Phoenix correct? See https://github.com/Boostport/hbase-phoenix-all-in-one/blob/master/Dockerfile#L12

Is this a compatibility issue with Guava?

It looks like that HBase's Jars are incompatible.

Hi All,

I recently updated one of my Go apps to use Phoenix 5.0 with HBase
2.0.2. I am using my Phoenix + HBase all in one docker image available
here: https://github.com/Boostport/hbase-phoenix-all-in-one

This is the log/output from the exception:

I am not entirely sure if this is a bug, so have not opened a JIRA yet.
Due to Guava issues with Tephra (see TEPHRA-181), I replaced HBase's
Guava 11.0.2 with Guava 13.0.1. See
https://github.com/Boostport/hbase-phoenix-all-in-one/blob/master/Dockerfile#L43

Is Guava 13.0.1 compatible with this release (signaling that this might
be cause by incompatible versions of Guava) or should I be investigating
something else?
