Apache Spark Project

Framework Requirements

You must have Java, Scala, Spark and SBT available from the command line for all Scala Projects listed in this section.

  • Java openjdk version 1.8.0_275 or later
  • Scala Version 2.12.12
  • Spark 3.0.1
  • SBT Tools 1.4.5

An easy way (on Linux / MacOS) to mange Java, Spark, Scala and SBT is through an management tool called sdkman. This tool allows one to install virtually any combination of tools you need without affecting your root file system. All the above requirements can be installed and managed via sdkman.

If you can't run : spark-shell and have it present the REPL, see Installing Spark

NOTE: Your version of Java and Scala may be different.
