Apache spark on windows without shortnames enabled
We use Apache Spark 2.2.0 in our stack. Our software by default like other
softwares gets installed under "C:\Program Files\....". We have a
restriction that we cannot ask our customers to enable short names on their
machines. From our experience, spark does not handle the absolute paths well
if there is a whitespace in the path neither while calling spark-class2.cmd
from commandline nor the paths inside spark-env.cmd.
We have tried the following:
1. Using double quotes around the path.
2. Escaping the whitespaces.
3. Using relative paths.
None of them have been successful in bringing up spark. How do you recommend
