How to add dependencies as jar files or Python scripts to PySpark
When we want to use external dependencies in the PySpark code, we have two options. We can either pass them as jar files or Python scripts.
In this article, I will show how to do that when running a PySpark job using AWS EMR. The jar and Python files will be stored on S3 in a location accessible from the EMR cluster (remember to set the permissions).
First, we have to add the
--py-files parameters to the
spark-submit command while starting a new PySpark job:
1 2 3 4 spark-submit --deploy-mode cluster \ --jars s3://some_bucket/java_code.jar \ --py-files s3://some_bucket/python_code.py \ s3://some_bucket/pyspark_job.py
pyspark_job.py file, I can import the code from the jar file just like any other dependency.
1 import python_code.something
