Cannot load main class from JAR file

New Contributor

Am using below command 

spark-submit –class “com.manu.hadoop.SparkMllib.SVM” –master local[4] /home/cloudera/Desktop/SparkMllib/target/SparkMllib-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT-jar-with-dependencies /home/cloudera/Desktop/training /home/cloudera/Desktop/training/test 100


but am getting error like Error: Cannot load main class from JAR file:

The error is complaining that you did not specific a JAR file which should be the last entry prior to any application arguments.
