Can you not create SparkContext inside the scheduler code? If you are looking just to access hdfs then you can use the following object with it, you can create/read/write files.

val hdfs = org.apache.hadoop.fs.FileSystem.get(new URI("hdfs://localhost:9000"), hadoopConf)

No. I am not accessing hdfs from either shell or a spark application. I want to access from spark "Scheduler code".

I face an error when I use sc.textFile() as SparkContext wouldn't have been created yet. So, error says: "sc not found".

val file = sc.textFile("hdfs://localhost:9000/sigmoid/input.txt")
