Use Sparkling Water via Spark Packages¶
Sparkling Water is also published as a Spark package. You can use it directly from your Spark distribution. The name of the published package is ai.h2o:sparkling-water-package, and it references all published Sparkling Water modules. Moreover, each module can be used as a Spark package if necessary.
If you would like to use Sparkling Water version 2.3.99999-30 on Spark 2.3 and launch example
CraigslistJobTitlesStreamingApp, then you can use the following
$SPARK_HOME/bin/spark-submit --packages ai.h2o:sparkling-water-package_2.11:2.3.99999-30 --class org.apache.spark.examples.h2o.CraigslistJobTitlesStreamingApp /dev/null
The Spark option
--packages points to the Duke package and the published Sparkling Water packages in the Maven repository.
A similar command works for
$SPARK_HOME/bin/spark-shell --packages ai.h2o:sparkling-water-package_2.11:2.3.99999-30
The same command works for Python programs:
$SPARK_HOME/bin/spark-submit --packages ai.h2o:sparkling-water-package_2.11:2.3.99999-30 example.py
Note: When you are using Spark packages, you do not need to download the Sparkling Water distribution. The Spark installation is sufficient.
