Implementing logistic regression using Spark ML pipelines

In this recipe, let's see how to run logistic regression algorithms using Spark ML pipelines.

Getting ready

To step through this recipe, you will need a running Spark cluster in any one of the modes, that is, local, standalone, YARN, or Mesos. For installing Spark on a standalone cluster, please refer http://spark.apache.org/docs/latest/spark-standalone.html. Also, include the Spark MLlib package in the build.sbt file so that it downloads the related libraries and the API can be used. Install Hadoop (optionally), Scala, and Java.

Note
