Subject Re: Query REST web service with Spark?
Date Wed, 01 Apr 2015 07:50:12 GMT
Hello Minnow,

It is possible. You can for example use Jersey REST client to query a web
service and get its results in a Spark job. In fact, that's what we did
actually in a recent project (in a Spark Streaming application).

Kind regards,
