Error AgnosticEncoder.isStruct() in Intellij using Scala locally.

New Contributor II

I've been trying to execute a connect to Azure Databricks from Intellij using Scala locally, but I've got this error below:

This error happened when is tried to run a show() command for example, but a simple printSchema() works. I have no idea why this happen.

Any idea?

Hi @FhSpZ

  • Ensure that the Spark version you’re using in your project (3.4.1) matches the version used by Databricks (13.3 LTS).
  • If there’s a mismatch, consider aligning the Spark versions to avoid compatibility issues.

Hi @Kaniz_Fatma,

I ensured that I was using the correct Spark version that matched the version of my databricks runtime, which was the same. But I tried use the Spark version 3.5.1 locally in the .sbt dependencies, then this worked, kind strange.

Anyway thank you very much @Kaniz_Fatma, your comment was very helpfully.
