Subject [jira] [Commented] (SPARK-10903) Make sqlContext global
Date Thu, 08 Oct 2015 20:06:29 GMT


Hossein Falaki commented on SPARK-10903:

+1 We have seen a lot of questions from new SparkR users about the life cycle of the context.

My question is: are we going to remove or deprecate sparkRSQL.init()? I suggest we should,
because right now calling that method creates a new Java SQLContext object, and having two
of them prevents users form viewing temp tables.
