Hi, everybody!

I'm trying to deploy a simple app in Spark standalone cluster with a single node (the localhost).
Unfortunately, something goes wrong while processing the JAR file and an exception NullPointerException is thrown.
I'm running everything in a single machine with Windows8.
Check below the detail.
Please help with suggestions what is missing to make it work - really looking forward to work with spark in a cluster.
The problem shows up both with my own little programs and with the spark examples (e.g. WordCount).
The problem also show both running with my custom driver or using the spark-submit or run-examples (which calls spark-submit).


(Hadoop I also compiled from source for windows - but not really being used.)


Drive Code:

    SparkConf conf = new SparkConf().setAppName("SimpleTests")
                .setJars(new String[]{"file:///myworkspace/spark-tests.jar"})
                .setMaster("spark://mymachine:7077")
                .setSparkHome("/mysparkhome/spark-1.1.0-bin-hadoop2.4");
  JavaSparkContext sc = new JavaSparkContext(conf);

Streaming coding is trivial and the usual:

Get this output and error:

Looking at source code (.scala and .java seams that It could be a targetDir that is set to null - but not sure.)

Please help....

Thanks a lot,
