What's New in Apache Phoenix

Learn about the new features of Phoenix in Cloudera Runtime 7.2.18.

Phoenix now supports alternate HBase connection registries

You can now use the Phoenix thick client using additional HBase connection registries. Phoenix now supports a Zookeeper-less connection strategy using a Master Registry implementation.

Phoenix now introduces the following JDBC URL variants.

  • jdbc:phoenix+zk: Uses Zookeeper. This is the original registry supported since the inception of HBase and Phoenix.
  • jdbc:phoenix+rpc: Uses RPC to connect to the specified HBase Region Server or Master nodes.
  • jdbc:phoenix+master: Uses RPC to connect to the specified HBase Master nodes.
