Apache Accumulo Client Examples

This documents how you run the simplest java examples.

This tutorial uses the following Java classes, which can be found in org.apache.accumulo.examples.simple.client in the examples-simple module:

Using the accumulo command, you can run the simple client examples by providing their class name, and enough arguments to find your accumulo instance. For example, the Flush class will flush a table:

$ PACKAGE=org.apache.accumulo.examples.simple.client
$ bin/accumulo $PACKAGE.Flush -u root -p mypassword -i instance -z zookeeper -t trace

The very simple RowOperations class demonstrates how to read and write rows using the BatchWriter and Scanner:

$ bin/accumulo $PACKAGE.RowOperations -u root -p mypassword -i instance -z zookeeper

To create a table, write to it and read from it:

$ bin/accumulo $PACKAGE.ReadWriteExample -u root -p mypassword -i instance -z zookeeper --createtable --create --read
