> On [https://hbase.apache.org/book.html#_using_rest_endpoints]
> The documentation states that to update a table schema (the configuration for 
> a column family), the {{PUT}} HTTP verb will update the current configuration 
> with the "fragment" of configuration provided, while the {{POST}} HTTP verb 
> will replace the current configuration with whatever is provided.
> In reality, the opposite is true: {{POST}} updates the configuration, {{PUT}} 
> replaces. The old javadoc for the o.a.h.h.rest package got it right, but the 
> entry on the HBase book transposed this.
