Subject [jira] [Commented] (SPARK-23502) Support async init of spark context during spark-shell startup
Date Fri, 23 Feb 2018 22:41:00 GMT


Sital Kedia commented on SPARK-23502:

I realized that we are printing the web url link and the application id during the spark-shell
startup (
If we do asynchronous initialization of spark context, those info will not be available during
the startup so we won't be able to print them. 

[], [~srowen]  - What do you think about async initialization of spark
context and getting rid of the web url link and application id that is printed during the

> Currently, whenever a user starts the spark shell, we initialize the spark context before
returning the prompt to the user. In environments, where spark context initialization takes
several seconds, it is not a very good user experience for the user to wait for the prompt.
Instead of waiting for the initialization of spark context, we can initialize it in the background
while we return the prompt to the user as soon as possible. Please note that even if we return
the prompt to the user soon, we still need to make sure to wait for the spark context initialization
to complete before any query is executed. 
> Please note that the scala interpreter already does very similar async initialization
in order to return the prompt to the user faster -
We will be emulating the behavior for Spark.
