Restudy SchemaRDD in SparkSQL

At the very beginning, SchemaRDD was just designed as an attempt to make life easier for developers in their daily routines of code debugging and unit testing on SparkSQL core module. The idea can boil down to describing the data structures inside RDD using a formal description similar to the relational database schema. On top of all basic functions provided by common RDD APIs, SchemaRDD also...

The JITter Conundrum - Just in Time for Your Traffic Jam

In interpreted languages, it just takes longer to get stuff done - I earlier gave the example where the Python source code a = b + c would result in a BINARY_ADD byte code which takes 78 machine instructions to do the add, but it's a single native ADD instruction if run in compiled language like C or C++. How can we speed this up? Or as the performance expert would say, how do I decrease...
