Subject Did DataFrames break basic SQLContext?
Date Wed, 18 Mar 2015 15:20:48 GMT
I started to play with 1.3.0 and found that there are a lot of breaking
changes. Previously, I could do the following:

    case class Foo(x: Int)
    val rdd = sc.parallelize(List(Foo(1)))
    import sqlContext._

Now, I am not able to directly use my RDD object and have it implicitly
become a DataFrame. It can be used as a DataFrameHolder, of which I could


But, that is kind of a pain in comparison. The other problem for me is that
I keep getting a SQLException:

    java.sql.SQLException: Failed to start database 'metastore_db' with
class loader  sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader@10393e97, see the next
exception for details.

This seems to be a dependency on Hive, when previously (1.2.0) there was no
such dependency. I can open tickets for these, but wanted to ask here
first....maybe I am doing something wrong?
