In Spark, it is possible to set some hadoop configuration settings like, e.g.
This works, the replication factor is set to 1. Assuming that this is the case, I thought that this pattern (prepending "spark.hadoop." to a regular hadoop configuration property), would also work for the textinputformat.record.delimiter:
However, it seems that spark just ignores this setting. Do I set the textinputformat.record.delimiter in the correct way? Is there a simpler way of setting the textinputformat.record.delimiter. I would like to avoid writing my own InputFormat, since I really only need to obtain records delimited by two newlines.
