Spark Streaming does not seem to recognize alternate delimiters for textStream

Explorer

I have a set of files that span multiple lines, so we are using Unicode character \\u0003 to denote the end of a record. However, my Spark code is ignoring the instruction to use the alternate delimiter, so each line is being returned as an entry.

Here is the relevant snippets of code:

SparkConf conf = new SparkConf();
conf.setMaster("local[2]");
conf.setAppName("MyApp");
Configuration config = new Configuration();
config.set("textinputformat.record.delimiter", "\\u0003");
conf.set("textinputformat.record.delimiter", "\\u0003");
final int batchSize = Integer.parseInt(cli.getOptionValue(BATCH_SIZE));
final JavaStreamingContext jsc = new JavaStreamingContext(conf, Durations.seconds(STREAM_DURATION_IN_SECS));

JavaDStream<String> inputStream = jsc.textFileStream(cli.getOptionValue(INPUT_DIRECTORY));
JavaDStream<Record> records = inputStream.flatMap(new CacheFileStreamFlatMap());
//in the above function I have a Log message where I can see the records coming out line by line

boolean mapSideCombine = true;
JavaPairDStream<String, Record> iniRecords = records.flatMapToPair(new RecordToIniRecord());
JavaPairDStream<String, List<Record>> combined = iniRecords.combineByKey(new CreateListOfRecords(), 
	// Create combiners
	new AddRecordToList(), 
	// merge Values
	new MergeListsOfRecords(), new HashPartitioner(batchSize), mapSideCombine);

combined.foreach(new WriteRecordsToIniTable());
		
jsc.start(); // Start the computation
jsc.awaitTermination(); // Wait for the computation to terminate
return 0;

Every entry that I can find in StackOverflow points at this as being the right way to accomplish this task, but I'm not seeing it work.

Thanks!

I finally got it to work. Here was the final working code:

final JavaStreamingContext jsc = new JavaStreamingContext(conf, Durations.seconds(STREAM_DURATION_IN_SECS));
jsc.sparkContext().hadoopConfiguration().set("textinputformat.record.delimiter", "\u0003");
JavaDStream<String> inputStream = jsc.textFileStream(cli.getOptionValue(INPUT_DIRECTORY));

I added the following line:

jsc.sparkContext().hadoopConfiguration().set("textinputformat.record.delimiter","\\u0003");

Now I'm getting a new set of errors:

Can you please take a try with:

conf.set("spark.hadoop.textinputformat.record.delimiter", "\\u0003");

Also you don't need to write this:

Configuration config =newConfiguration();

config.set("textinputformat.record.delimiter","\\u0003");

Actually none of Spark code will use this Configuration.

I finally got it to work. Here was the final working code:

final JavaStreamingContext jsc = new JavaStreamingContext(conf, Durations.seconds(STREAM_DURATION_IN_SECS));
jsc.sparkContext().hadoopConfiguration().set("textinputformat.record.delimiter", "\u0003");
JavaDStream<String> inputStream = jsc.textFileStream(cli.getOptionValue(INPUT_DIRECTORY));

Actually the way here by setting through Configuration is the the same as what I above by using SparkConf, SparkConf will pick out all the configurations started with "spark.hadoop", remove the prefix and set into Hadoop Configuration.
