---------------------------------------

             Summary: UDF in when control function is executed before the when clause is evaluated.
                 Key: SPARK-19844
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-19844
             Project: Spark
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: PySpark, SQL
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0, 2.0.1
            Reporter: Franklyn Dsouza


Sometimes we try to filter out the argument to a udf using {code}when(clause, udf).otherwise(default){code}

but we've noticed that sometimes the udf is being run on data that shouldn't have matched
the clause.

heres some code to reproduce the issue.

{code}
from pyspark.sql import functions as F
from pyspark.sql import types

df = sc.sql.createDataFrame([{'r': None}], schema=types.StructType([types.StructField('r',
types.StringType())]))

simple_udf = F.udf(lambda ref: ref.strip("/"), types.StringType())

df.withColumn('test', 
               F.when(F.col("r").isNotNull(), simple_udf(F.col("r")))
                .otherwise(F.lit(None))
             ).collect()
{code}

This causes an exception because the udf is running on null data. i get AttributeError: 'NoneType'
object has no attribute 'strip'. 

so it looks like the udf is being evaluated before the clause in the when is evaulated. Oddly
enough when i change {code}F.col("r").isNotNull(){code} to {code}df["r"] != None{code} then
it works. 

might be related to https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-13773
 
and https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-15282
