We are on HDP 2.6.5 but would like to use a more recent version of Phoenix, without upgrading it cluster-wide.

HBase coprocessors can be dynamically deployed (for instance picking up the coprocessor jar from HDFS) against specific tables. We are wondering whether this would be a route to using a newer version of Phoenix against a set of tables? We are unclear if there would be unwanted side-effects.

I'd be really interested to know if anyone has attempted this with success or otherwise.

Thanks in advance.
