One Hot Encoding in Apache Spark

0 votes

The following code that I wrote for One-Hot encoding in Spark is not working and is giving me errors like value not found : value encoder, etc. What I want this is - import csv data to create a dataframe, do one-hot encoding and create a new dataframe with the new encoded columns. The column that I want to encode is called SignalType so where in the code below I specify the column name?

import org.apache.spark.sql.SparkSession
val spark = SparkSession.builder().getOrCreate()
val df ="header","true").option("inferSchema","true")

for(line <- df.head(5)){

import{OneHotEncoder, StringIndexer}
val df = spark.createDataFrame(Seq(
(1, "1"),
(2, "2"),
(3, "3"),
(4, "4"),
)).toDF("categoryIndex1", "categoryIndex2")

val encoder = new OneHotEncoderEstimator()
.setInputCols(Array("categoryIndex1", "categoryIndex2"))
.setOutputCols(Array("categoryVec1", "categoryVec2"))

val model =
val encoded = model.transform(df)
