Subject Re: Union of 2 RDD's only returns the first one
Date Thu, 23 Jan 2014 00:37:30 GMT
What is the ++ operator here? Is this something you defined?

Another issue is that RDD's are not ordered, so when you union two
together it doesn't have a well defined ordering.

If you do want to do this you could coalesce into one partition, then
call MapPartitions and return an iterator that first adds your header
and then the rest of the file, then call saveAsTextFile. Keep in mind
this will only work if you coalesce into a single partition.

.mapPartitions(it => (Seq("col1,col2,col3") ++ it).iterator)
