Subject Re: transtition SQLContext to SparkSession
Date Mon, 18 Jul 2016 22:02:52 GMT
From what I read, there is no more Contexts.

	"SparkContext, SQLContext, HiveContext merged into SparkSession"

I have not tested it, but I don’t know if it’s true.

want to create SparkSession and SQLContext independendly (both from same SparkContext) since
that can only lead to confusion and inconsistent settings.
