Bug Description

HBase is an open source, non-relational, distributed database modeled after Google's
BigTable and written in Java. It is developed as part of Apache Software Foundation's
Apache Hadoop project and runs on top of HDFS (Hadoop Distributed Filesystem),
providing BigTable-like capabilities for Hadoop.

* **Features**

- Linear and modular scalability.
- Strictly consistent reads and writes.
- Automatic and configurable sharding of tables
- Automatic failover support between RegionServers.
- Convenient base classes for backing Hadoop MapReduce jobs with Apache HBase tables.
- Easy to use Java API for client access.
- Block cache and Bloom Filters for real-time queries.
- Query predicate push down via server side Filters
- Thrift gateway and a REST-ful Web service that supports XML, Protobuf, and
binary data encoding options
- Extensible jruby-based (JIRB) shell
- Support for exporting metrics via the Hadoop metrics subsystem to files or Ganglia; or via JMX

The status reporting on this could be improved significantly. When deployed with no relations, it indicates that it needs a relation to the plugin, but not Zookeeper nor the region server. Adding the relation to the plugin keeps it blocked, but the message still indicates that it's waiting for the plugin, instead of Zookeeper and the region server. Adding the relation to Zookeeper makes it indicate it's ready, but it can still be missing the regionserver relation and thus hbase will not be started.

I'm still of the opinion that having separate charms for separate roles makes things easier to understand, but I understand that there is a lot of overlap, even more-so in this charm than our others, so it's not a big deal here. I think composer and layers will make this easier in the future.

Once all of the relations were in place, it seemed to work as expected (smoke test worked). The smoke test should have a corresponding action, though.

Hello Amir! Thank you for the submission of apache hbase charm. I appreciate the amount of work that was done here to charm up this Apache project. I took a look at this charm and here is what I found.

# icon.svg
This icon does not look very nice. It is a white graphic on grey. The icon is on the same layer as the background so I was not able to fix this one, but I did create a new icon with a white background and put the hbase icon on the pictogram layer.

The file converts properly to markdown and looks great! The quickstart command is invalid, and I am unable to locate the “apache-hadoop-hbase” bundle on at all. The hyperlink to apache-hadoop-hbase url is also invalid giving me a 404 error.

# tests/
The tests appear to be a good representation of this charm. I ran them with bundletester and they passed! Congratulations on passing amulet tests! That helps verify the quality of the charm with a real deployment.

# master-relation-broken

While tearing down the test I encountered a hook error in the relations. Here is the “juju status”

          current: error
          message: 'hook failed: "master-relation-broken" for hbase-regionserver:regionserver'

The relevant section from the juju log:

It looks like the value of spark_home is being used without checking if it is empty or None. I searched for a set of...
