Apache Spark quickstart

The Apache Spark quickstart can be used to create a clustered Spark Service application driver wrapped into a long running Camel Spark job. This project contains a samples of data sources and jobs definitions. Such job definitions can be invoked using Cloud Platform IoT Connector.


This quickstart is dedicated to be executed against the Cloud Platform PaaS. Cloud platform PaaS comes with a pre-configured Apache Spark cluster, so make sure that PaaS has been properly started before before proceeding with a deployment of this example. The PaaS platform can be started by executing the following script:

bash <(curl -L -s https://goo.gl/RQd9tJ)

Installing quickstart

In order to install the quickstart execute the following commands:

git clone git@github.com:rhiot/quickstarts.git
cp -r quickstarts/spark spark
cd spark
mvn install
sudo cp target/rhiot-spark-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar /tmp/jobs/

Deploying quickstart

To deploy the quickstart, execute the following command:

bash <(curl -sL https://goo.gl/sQxjnE) --class io.rhiot.quickstarts.spark.RhiotJob /tmp/jobs/rhiot-spark-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar

After you execute the command above, you should see your task deployed into Spark cluster:

Invoking the deployed job

In order to invoke the deployed job using IoT Connector, you can use REST protocol adapter which is included in the PaaS distribution. If you issue the following REST request, you should see results of a job computation:

curl http://localhost:8080/spark/execute/rdd/countAndMultiply/20

In this particular example, we executed countAndMultiply job against RDD named rdd using 20 as an input data for the job.
