You can take a look at the Spark Kernel project:

The Spark Kernel's goal is to serve as the foundation for interactive
applications. The project provides a client library in Scala that abstracts
connecting to the kernel (containing a Spark Context), which can be
embedded into a web application. We demonstrated this at StataConf when we
embedded the Spark Kernel client into a Play application to provide an
interactive web application that communicates to Spark via the Spark Kernel
(hosting a Spark Context).

A getting started section can be found here:

Subject:	Creating Apache Spark-powered “As Service” applications

The question is about the ways to create a Windows desktop-based and/or
web-based application client that is able to connect and talk to the server
containing Spark application (either local or on-premise cloud
distributions) in the run-time.

Any language/architecture may work. So far, I've seen two things that may
a help in that, but I'm not so sure if they would be the best alternative
and how they work yet:

Spark Job Server - -
defines a REST API for Spark
Hue -

- uses item 1)

Any advice would be appreciated. Simple toy example program (or steps) that
shows, e.g. how to build such client for simply creating Spark Context on a
local machine and say reading text file and returning basic stats would be
ideal answer!
