In the CCA 175 exam do we have to use sbt, create jar files to ship to the server? I can use scala only. not proficient at all in python or java, and would try to avoid creating jar files

In the exam do we have to write a java/scala program file and create a jar to ship to the cluster? Can’t we just type the commands at the spark-shell prompt and create the output files as needed.

Hi Ravi,

In CCA-175 there is no need of building a jar and shipping to cluster.You can use a simple editor like Sublime Text to enter your commands ,copy your commands from the editor and test it on the cluster.




does this means only output matters at final?

That is correct. Test is evaluated only by answers.
