class SparkSession extends Serializable with Closeable with Logging

The entry point to programming Spark with the Dataset and DataFrame API.

In environments that this has been created upfront (e.g. REPL, notebooks), use the builder to get an existing session:

SparkSession.builder().getOrCreate()

The builder can also be used to create a new session:

SparkSession.builder
  .master("local")
  .appName("Word Count")
  .config("spark.some.config.option", "some-value")
  .getOrCreate()

    Note

    Other than the SparkContext, all shared state is initialized lazily. This method will force the initialization of the shared state to ensure that parent and child sessions are set up with the same shared state. If the underlying catalog implementation is Hive, this will initialize the metastore, which may take some time.
