IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


This portal is to open public enhancement requests against products and services offered by the IBM Data & AI organization.

Submitting spark applications without the use of spark-submit binary

We would like to be able to submit Spark applications from external client as follows:
"java --classpath... --spark-master ...."
without the use of spark-submit binary. We tested this approach with java SparkPi example by adding parameters spark url and spark-defaults.conf path. However, the example fails with the following key error:
16:14:55.052 [main] ERROR org.apache.spark.ui.SparkUI - Failed to bind SparkUI
java.io.IOException: Keystore was tampered with, or password was incorrect
at com.ibm.crypto.provider.JavaKeyStore.engineLoad(Unknown Source

Just a side note, self-contained python application works and accomplishes what we're looking, but developers specifically need this to work for Java applications.
