Re: Explain foreach() operation in apache spark

foreach() operation is an action.

From :
http://data-flair.training/blogs/rdd-transformations-actions-apis-apache-spark/#39_Foreach

It executes the function on each item in RDD. It is good for writing database or publishing to web services. It executes parameter less function for each data items.

Example:

val mydata = Array(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10)
val rdd1 = sc.parallelize(mydata)
rdd1.foreach{x=>println(x)}

OR

rdd1.foreach{println}


Output:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
