Subject Re: How to pass config variables to workers
Date Fri, 16 May 2014 22:16:01 GMT
I found that the easiest way was to pass variables in the Spark configuration
object. The only catch is that all of your properties keys must being with
"spark." in order for Spark to propagate the values. So, for example, in the

SparkConf conf = new SparkConf();
conf.set("spark.myapp.myproperty", "propertyValue");

JavaSparkContext context = new JavaSparkContext(conf);

I realize that this is most likely a hack, but it works and is easy (at
least for me) to follow from a programming standpoint compared to setting
environment variables outside of the program.
