To [~mdrob],

Thanks for your comment the other day. I just double-checked the checkAndPut 
examples in both xml- and json-format. They are correct and different from the 
regular Put. I will explain the json example as follows with the purpose that 
you and others can fully understand how the checkAndPut examples work:

curl -vi -X PUT \
-H "Accept: application/json" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
 "$":"TmV3R3V5"}] }]}' \

In the above json-format example: 
(1) \{"column":"Y2ZhOmFsaWFz", "$":"TmV3R3V5"} at the end of -d option are the 
check cell name and check cell value in Base-64 respectively: "Y2ZhOmFsaWFz" 
for "cfa:alias", and "TmV3R3V5" for "NewGuy". 
(2) \{"column":"Y2ZhOmFsaWFz","$":"T2xkR3V5"} are the new Put cell name and 
cell value in Base-64 respectively: "Y2ZhOmFsaWFz" for "cfa:alias", and 
"T2xkR3V5" for "OldGuy".
(3) "cm93MQ==" is the Base-64 for "row1" for the checkAndPut row key
(4) "/?check=put" after the "row key' in the request URL is required for 
checkAndPut WebHBase operation to work
Note: "cfa" is the column family name and "alia" are the column (qualifier) 
name for the non-Base64 encoded cell name.

Basically, the xml-format example is the same as the json-format example, I 
will not duplicate here.

In addition, can you tell me how to change all the values in monospaced font in 
the patch. Thanks.

I hope that the above explanation can help.

Have a Good Day!
