Subject Re: testing 0.9.0-incubating and maven

Hey Alex,

Maven profiles only affect the Spark build itself. They do not
transitively affect your own build.

Checkout the docs for how to deploy applications on yarn:

When compiling your application, just should explicitly add the hadoop
version you depend on to your own build (e.g. a hadoop-client
dependency). Take a look at the example here where we show adding

When deploying Spark applications on YARN, you actually want to mark
spark as a provided dependency in your application's maven and bundle
your application as an assembly jar, then submit it with a Spark YARN
bundle to a YARN cluster. The instructions are the same as they were
in 0.8.1.

For the spark jar you want to submit to YARN, you can download the
precompiled Spark one.

It might make sense to try this pipeline with 0.8.1 and get it working
there. It sounds here more like you are dealing with getting the build
set-up rather than a particular issue with the 0.9.0 RC.
