Subject Re: Building standalone spark application via sbt
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2016 08:54:38 GMT
I am following the example under
For standalone scala application.

I added all my dependencies via build.sbt (one dependency is under lib

When I run sbt package I see the jar created under

So compile seems to be working fine. However when I inspect that jar, it
only contains my scala class.
Unlike in java application we build a standalone jar, which contains all
the dependencies inside that jar, here all the dependencies are missing.

So as expected when I run the application via spark-submit I get the

Here is my build.sbt

name := "Test Advice Project"
version := "1.0"
scalaVersion := "2.10.6"
libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
    "org.apache.spark" %% "spark-core" % "1.6.1",
    "org.apache.spark" %% "spark-sql" % "1.6.1"

Can anyone please guide me to as what is going wrong and why sbt package is
not including all the dependencies jar classes in the new jar.
