Using Spark with Oracle RDBMS
The first thing we need to do in order to use Spark with Oracle is to actually install Spark framework. This is a very easy task, even if you don’t have any clusters. There is no need for Hadoop installation or any kind of framework, other than Spark binaries.
The first step is to go to Spark download page and download a package. In my example, I used Pre-Built for Hadoop 2.6. This means that we don’t need Hadoop cluster – the Spark installation will come with all of its Hadoop prerequisites.
