Whom it is for?

This script is intended for the users who has less to no knowledge about how linux works? and for those who wants to experience how Apache Hbase works without going into the installation part of it. This script automates the tedious installation process of Apache Hbase on UBUNTU.

How to use this script?

Step 1: Clone this repository. After cloning, you'll have these three files in the directory: install.sh, LICENSE.txt and README.md.

Step 2: Download the latest version of JDK for Linux and Apache Hbase. After downloading copy these two files to the directory where above three files resides. At the end of this step you'll have five files in the directory.

Step 3: Open install.sh file using your favorite text editor like vim, nano or gedit. Go to line numbered 48 and replace "jdk-8u112-linux-x64.tar.gz" (without quotes) with the name of the JDK file you have just downloaded. Now go to line numbered 66 and replace "hbase-0.94.8.tar.gz" (without quotes) with the name of the Hbase file you have just downloaded.

Step 4: Fire-up a terminal and get super user access (root access). Navigate to the directory where the above files resides and run the command "sh install.sh" (without quotes). Sit back and relax. Wait for the installation process to complete which usually takes not more than 10 minutes. When the process is complete without any errors use standard Hbase commands to interct with Apache Hbase.
