I experimented with using getResourceAsStream(cls, fileName) instead cls.getResource(fileName).toURI. That works!

I have no idea why the latter method does not work in Spark. Any explanations would be welcome.

Thanks,

In some classes, I initialize some values from resource files using the following snippet:
new File(cls.getResource(fileName).toURI)
This works fine in SBT. When I run it using spark-submit, I get a bunch of errors because the classes cannot be initialized. What can I do to make such initialization that is Spark friendly?
