>                 Key: SPARK-4476
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-4476
>             Project: Spark
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: SQL
>            Reporter: Davies Liu
>            Priority: Major

> For the jsonRDD like this: 
> {code}
> """ {a: 1} """
> """ {b: 2} """
> """ {c: 3} """
> """ {d: 4} """
> """ {e: 5} """
> {code}
> It will create a StructType with 5 fileds in it, each field come from a different row.
It will be a problem if the RDD is large. A StructType with thousands or millions fields is
hard to play with (will cause stack overflow during serialization).
> It should be MapType for this case. We need a clear rule to decide StructType or MapType
will be used for dict in json data.
