Hi Prem,

Spark actually does somewhat support different algorithms in
CrossValidator, but it's not really obvious.  You basically need to make a
Pipeline and build a ParamGrid with different algorithms as stages.  Here
is an simple example:

val dt = new DecisionTreeClassifier()
    .setLabelCol("label")
    .setFeaturesCol("features")

val lr = new LogisticRegression()
    .setLabelCol("label")
    .setFeaturesCol("features")

val pipeline = new Pipeline()

val paramGrid = new ParamGridBuilder()
  .addGrid(pipeline.stages, Array(Array[PipelineStage](dt),
Array[PipelineStage](lr)))

val cv = new CrossValidator()
      .setEstimator(pipeline)
      .setEstimatorParamMaps(paramGrid)

Although adding more params in the grid can get a little complicated - I
discuss in detail here https://bryancutler.github.io/cv-pipelines/
As Patrick McCarthy mentioned, you might want to follow SPARK-19071 ,
specifically https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-19357 which
parallelizes model evaluation.
