I downloaded installed all pre-reqs for building Spark. ( SBT, Git etc)
have extracted the Spark files in "C:\Users\Arsalan\Spark-0.9.0-incubating\" which contains all the subfolders including 'sbt'
then to build I run the command
'sbt\sbt' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
then from inside the sbt directory I ran
<sbt assembly> that kicked off the build but in the end didn't generate any jars.
