Hello !

I wonder if there any way  how to get working Phoenix 4.13 or 4.14 with Spark 2.1.0 

In production we used Spark SQL dataframe to load from and  write data to Hbase with Apache Phoenix  (Spark 1.6 and Phoenix 4.7)  and it worked well.

After upgrade , we faced an issues with loading and writing, it is not possible anymore.

Our environment:

·         Cloudera 5.11.2,

·         HBase 1.2

·         Spark 2.1.0   (parcel , compatible with Coudera 5.11.2)

·         APACHE_PHOENIX  4.14.0-cdh5.11.2.p0.3   (we tested 4.13 as well)


We read/write data by Python (Pyspark library) but the same errors will come also writing in Scala.

Read data  from Phoenix 4.13  with Spark 2.1.0 error :

Py4JJavaError: An error occurred while calling o213.load.
: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/spark/sql/DataFrame

Read data  from Phoenix 4.14  with Spark 2.1.0 error :

Py4JJavaError: An error occurred while calling o89.load. : com.google.common.util.concurrent.ExecutionError: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: com.lmax.disruptor.dsl.Disruptor.<init>(Lcom/lmax/disruptor/EventFactory;ILjava/util/concurrent/ThreadFactory;Lcom/lmax/disruptor/dsl/ProducerType;Lcom/lmax/disruptor/WaitStrategy;)V

(Disruptor .jar versions changing -  did not solve the issue)

Insert data to Phoenix 4.14  with Spark 2.1.0  error:

Py4JJavaError: An error occurred while calling o186.save. : java.lang.AbstractMethodError: org.apache.phoenix.spark.DefaultSource.createRelation(Lorg/apache/spark/sql/SQLContext;Lorg/apache/spark/sql/SaveMode;Lscala/collection/immutable/Map;Lorg/apache/spark/sql/Dataset;)Lorg/apache/spark/sql/sources/BaseRelation;  

Actually we are aware that  Spark2 failed to read and write Phoenix  due to Spark changing the DataFrame API, as well as a Scala version change, the resultant JAR isn't binary compatible with Spark versions < 2.0.

DataFrame class is missing from Spark 2 and This issues was fixed ONCE  by patch for Phoenix versioon 4.10  https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PHOENIX-3333

Unfortanatly this patch is not sutable for our enviroment, Could you please comment whether other versions of Phoenix has such fix?

How to read/write data from Phoenix 4.13/or 4.14 using Spark2?
