I know youre probably not looking for an answer anymore, but for the people that come through here looking, I think I found the solution. This is how to package spark into a single executable JAR with Maven.

You need to make a MVN assembly plugin definition in your spark-parent pom.xml. Right now there is only one in the spark-core pom.xml

It should follow this format

Here is a copy-able txt file :slight_smile:
parent_pom_assembly_plugin.txt (1.1 KB)

Keep in mind you’ll have to change your spark version to match your currently installed version

Ideally a fat jar would be one artifact produced by Sparks build system. @Rob_Rasmussen care to to create a PR against https://github.com/igniterealtime/Spark/blob/master/pom.xml with that?

Done :slight_smile: (Be aware: I’m using a slightly older version of Spark)
