Subject [jira] [Created] (SPARK-19561) Pyspark Dataframes don't allow timestamps near epoch
Date Sat, 11 Feb 2017 21:37:42 GMT
Jason White created SPARK-19561:

             Summary: Pyspark Dataframes don't allow timestamps near epoch
                 Key: SPARK-19561
             Project: Spark
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: PySpark, SQL
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0, 2.0.1
            Reporter: Jason White

Pyspark does not allow timestamps at or near the epoch to be created in a DataFrame. Related

TimestampType.toInternal converts a datetime object to a number representing microseconds
since the epoch. For all times more than 2148 seconds before or after 1970-01-01T00:00:00+0000,
this number is greater than 2^31 and Py4J automatically serializes it as a long.

However, for times within this range (~35 minutes before or after the epoch), Py4J serializes
it as an int. When creating the object on the Scala side, ints are not recognized and the
value goes to null. This leads to null values in non-nullable fields, and corrupted Parquet

The solution is trivial - force TimestampType.toInternal to always return a long.
