As is the Cloudera HBase in 5.6, 5.5, 5.4, ... quite different from Apache HBase in coprocessor
and RPC internal extension APIs. 

We have made some ports of Apache Phoenix releases to CDH here:

It's a personal project of mine, not something supported by the community. Sounds like I should
look at what to do with CDH 5.6 and 5.7.

no answer on this. I hope they don’t leave us out in the cold. I tried building it too before
with the instructions here I could get
it to build, but I couldn’t get it to work using the Phoenix installation instructions.
For some reason, dropping the server jar into CDH 5.7.0 HBase lib directory didn’t change
things. HBase seemed not to use it. Now that this is out, I’ll give it another try hoping
that there is a way. If anyone has any leads to help, please let me know.
