The HBase component can be provided a custom HBaseConfiguration object as a property or it can create an HBase configuration object on its own based on the HBase related resources that are found on classpath.
<bean id="hbase" class="org.apache.camel.component.hbase.HBaseComponent"> <property name="configuration" ref="config"/> </bean>
If no configuration object is provided to the component, the component will create one. The created configuration will search the class path for an hbase-site.xml file, from which it will draw the configuration.
