stack, I have tried it with a standalone HBase writing to a local filesystem (I think there's no way making a standalone instance of HBase use HDFS). And that works quite nicely. Tables get flushed when I SIGTERM the process, etc. Once it came to testing I had to run it with miniDFS and that's where things got interesting. suppressHdfsShutdownHook can't disable the HDFS shutdown hook of the miniDFS, simply because there's nothing to disable.
So here's the question, should I work around this one special case by simply testing for the
or would you propose something else?
I'd appreciate your advice, since I'm just learning my way around HBase.
