IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

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 Keystore was tampered with, or password was incorrect
at 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.
