Subject [jira] [Commented] (SPARK-2360) CSV import to SchemaRDDs
Date Fri, 22 Aug 2014 17:40:13 GMT


Hossein Falaki commented on SPARK-2360:

There is a pull request for this issue: <>

It did not make it to Spark 1.1, due to last minute API changes. It will make it to the next
release. The API will provide a very easy (default) way of reading common CSV (e.g., comma
delimited) into SchemaRDDs. Users will be able to specify delimiter and quotation characters.

Mostly this is defining options when importing.  Off the top of my head:
> - What is the separator?
> - Provide column names or infer them from the first row.
> - how to handle multiple files with possibly different schemas
> - do we have a method to let users specify the datatypes of the columns or are they just
> - what types of quoting / escaping do we want to support?
