Subject Re: Custom Cluster Managers / Standalone Recovery Mode in Spark
Date Sun, 01 Feb 2015 21:37:57 GMT
For the specific question of supplementing Standalone Mode with a custom
leader election protocol, this was actually already committed in master and
will be available in Spark 1.3:

You can specify spark.deploy.recoveryMode = "CUSTOM"
and spark.deploy.recoveryMode.factory to a class which
implements StandaloneRecoveryModeFactory. See the current implementations
of FileSystemRecoveryModeFactory and ZooKeeperRecoveryModeFactory.

I will update the JIRA you linked to be more current.
