Java and .NET interoperability tool provider JNBridge has released news from its lab to demonstrate how to build .NET-based LINQ providers for Java-based HBase.
NOTE: HBase is a distributed, scalable, big data storage and retrieval system developed as part of the Apache Hadoop project. As a Java framework, HBase must use Java APIs, resulting in single-platform solutions. Cross-platform solutions, particularly those that provide front-end data query through languages like LINQ, the Microsoft .NET Language Integrated Query framework, are currently not supported.
Using JNBridgePro functionality (JNBridge's flagship interoperability software product) the lab provides a new way to create queries in .NET-based clients and to enable developers to simplify those queries using LINQ.
JNBridge Labs is a series of newly developed interoperability kits designed to help developers address new ways of connecting disparate technologies both on the ground and in the cloud.
JNBridge's previous lab (Creating .NET-based Mappers and Reducers for Hadoop), focused on using Hadoop with .NET-based back-ends. This new lab expands the possibilities by enabling .NET-based front-ends to access HBase.
"With this lab, once the LINQ provider is written, developers can write LINQ queries without needing to know anything about HBase and Hadoop," said Wayne Citrin, CTO of JNBridge. "This lab fills an enormous gap in the market. Heterogeneous teams won't have to cross-train to access Hadoop."
JNBridgePro connects Java and .NET Framework-based components and applications together with Visual Studio and Eclipse plug-ins that remove the complexities of cross-platform interoperability.
