>                 Key: SPARK-26589
>                 URL:
>             Project: Spark
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: SQL
>    Affects Versions: 2.4.0
>            Reporter: Jan Gorecki
>            Priority: Major
> I found multiple tickets asking for median function to be implemented in Spark. Most
of those tickets links to "SPARK-6761 Approximate quantile" as duplicate of it. The thing
is that approximate quantile is a workaround for lack of median function. Thus I am filling
this Feature Request for proper, exact, not approximation of, median function. I am aware
about difficulties that are caused by distributed environment when trying to compute median,
nevertheless I don't think those difficulties is reason good enough to drop out `median` function
from scope of Spark. I am not asking about efficient median but exact median.
