> The usage statement for the "importtsv" command to hbase claims this:
> "Note: if you do not use this option, then the target table must already 
> exist in HBase" (in reference to the "importtsv.bulk.output" command-line 
> option)
> The truth is, the table must exist no matter what, importtsv cannot and will 
> not create it for you.
> This is the case because the createSubmittableJob method of ImportTsv does 
> not even attempt to check if the table exists already, much less create it:
> (From org.apache.hadoop.hbase.mapreduce.ImportTsv.java)
> 305 HTable table = new HTable(conf, tableName);
> The HTable method signature in use there assumes the table exists and runs a 
> meta scan on it:
> (From org.apache.hadoop.hbase.client.HTable.java)
> 142 * Creates an object to access a HBase table.
> ...
> 151 public HTable(Configuration conf, final String tableName)
> What we should do inside of createSubmittableJob is something similar to what 
> the "completebulkloads" command would do:
> (Taken from org.apache.hadoop.hbase.mapreduce.LoadIncrementalHFiles.java)
> 690 boolean tableExists = this.doesTableExist(tableName);
> 691 if (!tableExists) this.createTable(tableName,dirPath);
> Currently the docs are misleading, the table in fact must exist prior to 
> running importtsv. We should check if it exists rather than assume it's 
> already there and throw the below exception:
> 12/03/14 17:15:42 WARN client.HConnectionManager$HConnectionImplementation: 
> Encountered problems when prefetch META table: 
> org.apache.hadoop.hbase.TableNotFoundException: Cannot find row in .META. for 
> table: myTable2, row=myTable2,,99999999999999
>       at 
> org.apache.hadoop.hbase.client.MetaScanner.metaScan(MetaScanner.java:150)
> ...
