Subject Re: How to make a CGI with HBase?
Date Mon, 28 Feb 2011 15:51:30 GMT

I have been using the Thrift Perl API to connect to Hbase for my web app.  
At the moment i only perform random reads and scans based on date ranges  
and some other search criteria.
It works and I am still testing performance.
