Subject Re: Chaining Spark Streaming Jobs

With file stream you will have to deal with the following

   1. The file(s) must not be changed once created. So if the files are
   being continuously appended, the new data will not be read. Refer
   2. The files must be created in the dataDirectory by atomically *moving*
    or *renaming* them into the data directory.

Since the latency requirements for the second job in the chain is only a
few mins, you may have to end up creating a new file every few mins

You may want to consider Kafka as your intermediary store for building a
chain/DAG of streaming jobs
