Getting started with Spark on Windows
Download Apache Spark by choosing a Spark release (e.g. 2.2.0) and package type (e.g. Pre-built for Apache Hadoop 2.7 and later).
Extract the Spark tar file to a directory e.g. C:\Spark\spark-2.2.0-bin-hadoop2.7
GIT clone winutils to your system e.g. cloned to directory C:\winutils
Add below system environment variables where
HADOOP_HOME is set to the winutils hadoop binary location (depending on the version of pre-built chosen earlier) and
SPARK_HOME is set to the Spark location which we had extracted in step 2.
Create a new folder
tmp/hive in your C: drive.
Provide permissions for the folder
winutils.exe by running below command in your command prompt
Now validate the setup by running
spark-shell from your
SPARK_HOME directory in your command prompt
