Subject Re: Spark not handling Null
Date Mon, 11 Apr 2016 07:43:30 GMT
Surround it with a try..catch where its complaining about the null pointer
to avoid the job being failed. What is happening here is like you are
returning null and the following operation is working on null which causes
the job to fail.

Thanks
Best Regards
