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".On Fri, Nov 14, 2014 at 9:07 PM, Akhil Das <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:like this?val file = sc.textFile("hdfs://localhost:9000/sigmoid/input.txt")ThanksBest RegardsOn Fri, Nov 14, 2014 at 9:02 PM, rapelly kartheek <email@example.com> wrote:Hi,I am trying to read a HDFS file from Spark "scheduler code".
