Subject Re: How to initialize a test environment ?
Date Tue, 13 Oct 2009 13:13:52 GMT

Hi there,

I'm currently trying to set up a test environment launched during my 
unit tests.
I succeed in lauching hbase from the bin scripts provided with hbase and 
test on my local server,
but i was unable to run it from Java.
I wrote a class inspired from the Mini*Server located in Hbase Tests.

(I use Hbase 0.20)

Here my class :

public class StandaloneServer {

   private static Log log = LogFactory.getLog(StandaloneServer.class);

   private MiniZooKeeperCluster zookeeper;
   private MiniHBaseCluster hbase;
   private MiniDFSCluster dfs;

   private HBaseConfiguration conf;

   public void startup() throws Exception {
       conf = new HBaseConfiguration();

       log.info("Start DFS ...");
       dfs = new MiniDFSCluster(conf, 2, true, (String[]) null);
       // set file system to the mini dfs just started up
       FileSystem fs = dfs.getFileSystem();
       conf.set("fs.default.name", fs.getUri().toString());
       Path parentdir = fs.getHomeDirectory();
       conf.set(HConstants.HBASE_DIR, parentdir.toString());
       FSUtils.setVersion(fs, parentdir);

       log.info("Start Zookeeper ...");
       zookeeper = new MiniZooKeeperCluster();
       int clientPort = zookeeper.startup(new File(parentdir.toString(), 
       conf.set("hbase.zookeeper.property.clientPort", Integer

       // Disable regionserver info.
       conf.set("hbase.regionserver.info.port", "-1");
       conf.set("hbase.master.info.port", "-1");

       log.info("Start HBase ...");
       hbase = new MiniHBaseCluster(conf, 1);

       log.info("Check ROOT metatable connexion ...");
       new HTable(conf, HConstants.META_TABLE_NAME);


   public void shutdown() {
       if (dfs != null) {
           try {
               FileSystem fs = dfs.getFileSystem();
               if (fs != null)
           } catch (IOException e) {
               System.err.println("error closing file system: " + e);
           try {
           } catch (Exception e) { /* ignore */

   public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
       final StandaloneServer server = new StandaloneServer();

       // add close hook
       Runtime.getRuntime().addShutdownHook(new Thread() {
           public void run() {


I first wrote a main operation to easily test the behaviour ...
The idea is to start the server when my unit test is set up.

I got the following error :
09/10/13 14:12:13 INFO hbase.StandaloneServer: Check ROOT metatable 
connexion ...
Exception in thread "main" 
org.apache.hadoop.hbase.client.NoServerForRegionException: No server 
address listed in -ROOT- for region .META.,,1



   at [oahh.client].HTable.<init>(HTable.java:125)
   at (...) StandaloneServer.startup(StandaloneServer.java:53)
   at (...) StandaloneServer.main(StandaloneServer.java:76)

And some errors about "NO JSP Support" (but I think that I can ignore 
them, no ?)

So my question are :
- Is it the good way to start a test environment ?

And, If I succeed in starting up my server :
- Should I stop and restart the servers between each test ? (it seems to 
take a long time)
- May I just delete data from tables ? (it seems to take less time)

Thanks for your feedback,
Guillaume Dufrêne.
