Who loves Apache Spark Structured Streaming? 🙋‍♂️

Who hates the fact that testing streaming queries is very difficult? 🙋‍♂️

That's why this library exists: to expose a nice and pure API to test Apache Spark Structured Streaming queries.

It consists of test sources of Spark itself that I took and cleaned a bit, with this library you can do:

class TestTheQueryTest extends QueryTest with StreamTest {

  override val streamingTimeout: Span = 1000.minutes // to set after how long a test should fail

  test("Dante count test") {
    import spark.implicits._
    val staticInput = List(...)
    val source = MemoryStream[String](0, spark.sqlContext)
    val res = source.toDS().map(_.split("\\s+").length).where(col("value").gt(lit(6)))
    
    testStream(res)(
      StartStream(Trigger.ProcessingTime(10), new StreamManualClock),
      AddData(source, staticInput.head),
      AdvanceManualClock(10),
      CheckNewAnswer(7),
      AddData(
        source,
        staticInput.drop(1): _*
      ),
      AdvanceManualClock(10),
      CheckNewAnswer()
    )

As you can see, the testStream part is just "pushing" events into the streaming query, manipulating the "clock" and asserting that some (or none!) record should be produced by the streaming query, in that microbatch! Isn't this beautiful?

Accessing the library

Add this to your sbt build:

libraryDependencies += "com.github.tmnd1991" %% "testing-spark-structured-streaming" % "0.0.1"

Or this to your pom.xml:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.github.tmnd1991</groupId>
    <artifactId>testing-spark-structured-streaming_2.12</artifactId>
    <version>0.0.1</version>
</dependency>

And if you want to depend on some snapshot version, you need to add sonatype snapshot repository:

On sbt:

resolvers += Resolver.sonatypeRepo("snapshots")

On maven:

<repositories>
  <repository>
    <id>snapshots-repo</id>
    <url>https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots</url>
    <releases><enabled>false</enabled></releases>
    <snapshots><enabled>true</enabled></snapshots>
  </repository>
</repositories>
