Subject Re: Caching HBase connection
Date Fri, 18 Feb 2011 19:17:32 GMT
The connection is kept open for the lifetime of the JVM. It's also
good to keep HTable's opened, one per thread per table, as the real
connections are done in a utility class inside HBaseConnectionManager
(which you don't have to worry about).
