Python for Spark scripts

SPSS Modeler supports Python scripts for Apache Spark.

  • Python nodes depend on the Spark environment.
  • Python scripts must use the Spark API because data is presented in the form of a Spark DataFrame.
  • When installing Python, make sure all users have permission to access the Python installation.
  • If you want to use the Machine Learning Library (MLlib), you must install a version of Python that includes NumPy.
