Subject Re: Rest Client remote connection

What REST does wrt. filters is pass through a filter specification from
client to server. The filter API has been changing for each HBase major
version so it hasn't made sense (yet) to make this a first class part of
the REST representations, thus version independent. (Otherwise retired
filter types would need be emulated.) Certainly an older server will not
understand filters constructed by a newer client. In short, if you want to
use filters for scans submitted through the REST interface the client and
server versions should be the same.
