Li Lu updated YARN-4102:
    Attachment: YARN-4102-YARN-2928.001.patch

Instead of an "incremental" mode I added a "force" mode that will continue to 
create all hbase tables even if exceptions occur. This option is (of course) 
turned off by default and is supposed to be used mainly by devs. 

One thing makes me really painful is the long try-catch statements for all 
hbase tables. I'm trying my best to keep code duplication in a low level, but 
due to the generic types of the tables, I have to perform try-catch for each 
one of the table creations. 

I've also cleaned up all short options. After centralize them I hope it's 
easier to avoid option short name collisions.

> When debugging timeline POCs, we may need to create hbase tables that are 
> added in some ongoing patches. Right now, our schema creator will exit when 
> it hits one existing table. While this is a correct behavior with end users, 
> this introduces much trouble in debugging POCs: every time we have to disable 
> all existing tables, drop them, run the schema creator to generate all 
> tables, and regenerate all test data. 
> Maybe we'd like to add an "incremental" mode so that the creator will only 
> create non-existing tables? This is pretty handy in deploying our POCs. Of 
> course, consistency has to be kept in mind across tables.
