Unmesha SreeVeni shows us how we can create a list of column names in Scala to pass into a Spark DataFrame’s
Now our example dataframe is ready.
Create a List[String] with column names.
scala> var selectExpr : List[String] = List("Type","Item","Price") selectExpr: List[String] = List(Type, Item, Price)
Now our list of column names is also created.
Lets select these columns from our dataframe.
Use .head and .tail to select the whole values mentioned in the List()
