HBaseStorage scheme for Load/Slice function
-------------------------------------------

                 Key: PIG-759
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-759
             Project: Pig
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Gunther Hagleitner


We would like to change the HBaseStorage function to use a scheme when loading 
a table in pig. The scheme we are thinking of is: "hbase". So in order to load 
an hbase table in a pig script the statement should read:

{noformat}
table = load 'hbase://<tablename>' using HBaseStorage();
{noformat}

If the scheme is omitted pig would assume the tablename to be an hdfs path and 
the storage function would use the last component of the path as a table name 
and output a warning.

For details on why see jira issue: PIG-758
