This chapter will cover access to Apache HBase either through non-Java languages, or through custom protocols. For information on using the native HBase APIs, refer to User API Reference and the new ??? chapter.
Currently most of the documentation on REST exists in the Apache HBase Wiki on REST (The REST gateway used to be called 'Stargate'). There are also a nice set of blogs on How-to: Use the Apache HBase REST Interface by Jesse Anderson.
To run your REST server under SSL, enable the following configs when you launch the REST server:
hbase.rest.ssl.enabled hbase.rest.ssl.keystore.store hbase.rest.ssl.keystore.password hbase.rest.ssl.keystore.keypassword
Documentation about Thrift has moved to ???.
