I have both “hbase-hadoop-compat-0.98.0-hadoop2.jar” and “hbase-hadoop2-compat-0.98.0-hadoop2.jar” in my classpath. None of them include the required class.
Moreover – I used a utility called “JWhich” (http://www.javaworld.com/article/2077468/core-java/java-tip-105–mastering-the-classpath-with-jwhich.html) to search for the “org.apache.hadoop.hbase.test.MetricsAssertHelper” class in the entire
hbase classpath and
hadoop classpath libs and could not find it anywhere…
