Subject Re: get directory names that are affected by sc.textFile("path/to/dir/*/*/*.js")

This won't work as you can never guarantee which files were read by Spark
if some other process is writing files to the same location. It would be
far less work to move files matching your pattern to a staging location and
then load them using sc.textFile. you should find hdfs file system calls
that are equivalent to normal file system if command line tools like distcp
or mv don't meet your needs.
