unable to pass rdd to a udf in pyspark

I am trying to pass an rdd to a function, but the function is not being called.

My sample code is

def test(x):
    print("in func")

data = sc.textFile("path/to/data") x: x.split(",")).map(lambda row: test(row))

when I run this code it gives me nothing

So I have tried to do foreach on rdd and called the function.


I am now able to see the data and the print statement also.
But this happens only when I run in pyspark shell level.
When I try it in code project level it throws me an error like

19/03/16 17:46:04 WARN TaskSetManager: Lost task 1.0 in stage 2.0 (TID 4, ip-172-31-20-247.ec2.internal, executor 1): org.apache.spark.api.python.PythonException: Traceback (most recent call last):

return pickle.loads(obj)

I could see the approach of rdd.foreach(func) in Apache Spark user guide.

I can see this error if I run the calling function and called the function in the same file or even in the different files.

I am not sure what I am missing here. Can someone please help me understand my mistake.
