trait Encoder[T] extends Serializable

:: Experimental :: Used to convert a JVM object of type T to and from the internal Spark SQL representation.

Scala

Encoders are generally created automatically through implicits from a SparkSession, or can be explicitly created by calling static methods on Encoders.

import spark.implicits._

val ds = Seq(1, 2, 3).toDS() // implicitly provided (spark.implicits.newIntEncoder)

Java

Encoders are specified by calling static methods on Encoders.

List<String> data = Arrays.asList("abc", "abc", "xyz");
Dataset<String> ds = context.createDataset(data, Encoders.STRING());

Encoders can be composed into tuples:

Encoder<Tuple2<Integer, String>> encoder2 = Encoders.tuple(Encoders.INT(), Encoders.STRING());
List<Tuple2<Integer, String>> data2 = Arrays.asList(new scala.Tuple2(1, "a");
Dataset<Tuple2<Integer, String>> ds2 = context.createDataset(data2, encoder2);

Or constructed from Java Beans:

Encoders.bean(MyClass.class);
