I found this here Bulk data migration through Spark SQL

The dbname parameter can be any query wrapped in parenthesis with an alias. So in my case, I need to do this:

val query = """
  (select dl.DialogLineID, dlwim.Sequence, wi.WordRootID from Dialog as d
    join DialogLine as dl on dl.DialogID=d.DialogID
    join DialogLineWordInstanceMatch as dlwim on dlwim.DialogLineID=dl.DialogLineID
    join WordInstance as wi on wi.WordInstanceID=dlwim.WordInstanceID
    join WordRoot as wr on wr.WordRootID=wi.WordRootID
    where d.InSite=1 and dl.Active=1
    limit 100) foo

val df = sqlContext.format("jdbc").
  option("url", "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/local_content").
  option("driver", "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").
  option("useUnicode", "true").
  option("useSSL", "false").
  option("user", "root").
  option("password", "").

As expected, loading each table as its own Dataframe and joining them in Spark was very inefficient.


TL;DR: just create a view in your database.

Detail: I have a table t_city in my postgres database, on which I create a view:

create view v_city_3500 as
    select asciiname, country, population, elevation
    from t_city
    where elevation>3500
    and population>100000

select * from v_city_3500;

 asciiname | country | population | elevation
 Potosi    | BO      |     141251 |      3967
 Oruro     | BO      |     208684 |      3936
 La Paz    | BO      |     812799 |      3782
 Lhasa     | CN      |     118721 |      3651
 Puno      | PE      |     116552 |      3825
 Juliaca   | PE      |     245675 |      3834

In the spark-shell:

val sx= new org.apache.spark.sql.SQLContext(sc)

var props=new java.util.Properties()
props.setProperty("driver", "org.postgresql.Driver" )
val url="jdbc:postgresql://buya/dmn?user=dmn&password=dmn"



Long = 145725

Long = 6


with MYSQL read/loading data something like below

val conf = new SparkConf().setAppName("SparkMe Application").setMaster("local[2]")
    val sc = new SparkContext(conf)
    val sqlContext = new org.apache.spark.sql.SQLContext(sc)
    val jdbcDF ="jdbc").options(
      Map("url" -> "jdbc:mysql://<host>:3306/corbonJDBC?user=user&password=password",
        "dbtable" -> "TABLE_NAME")).load()

write data to table as below

import java.util.Properties
    val prop = new Properties()
    prop.put("user", "<>")
    prop.put("password", "simple$123")
    val dfWriter = jdbcDF.write.mode("append")
    dfWriter.jdbc("jdbc:mysql://<host>:3306/corbonJDBC?user=user&password=password", "tableName", prop)

to create dataframe from query do something like below

val finalModelDataDF = {
      val query = "select * from table_name"


to save the output of a query to a new dataframe, simple set the result equal to a variable:

val newDataFrame = spark.sql("SELECT a.X,b.Y,c.Z FROM FOO as a JOIN BAR as b ON ... JOIN ZOT as c ON ... WHERE ...")

and now newDataFrame is a dataframe with all the dataframe functionalities available to it.


If you have your table already registered in your SQLContext, you could simply use sql method.

val resultDF = sqlContext.sql("SELECT a.X,b.Y,c.Z FROM FOO as a JOIN BAR as b ON ... JOIN ZOT as c ON ... WHERE ...")
