Scala Question

Type mismatch, found Unit, required Int. Using pattern matching, Scala with Java libraries

I'm trying to register some udfs (user defined functions) for spark sql and when I try to compile I get a type mismatch error for the following code:

csc.udf.register("DATEADD", (datePart: String, number: Int, date: Timestamp) => {
val time: Calendar = Calendar.getInstance
datePart match {
case "Y" => time.add(Calendar.YEAR, number)
case "M" => time.add(Calendar.MONTH, number)
case "D" => time.add(Calendar.DATE, number)
case "h" => time.add(Calendar.HOUR, number)
case "m" => time.add(Calendar.MINUTE, number)
case "s" => time.add(Calendar.SECOND, number)
case _ => 0
}: Int)

Here is the error I'm getting:

[error] /vagrant/SQLJob/src/main/scala/sqljob/context/CassandraSQLContextFactory.scala:111: type mismatch;
[error] found : Unit
[error] required: Int
[error] case "Y" => time.add(Calendar.YEAR: Int, number)
[error] ^
[error] one error found
[error] (compile:compileIncremental) Compilation failed
[error] Total time: 7 s, completed Jul 2, 2015 4:19:29 PM

The Calendar class is from java.util.Calendar

Timestamp if from java.sql.Timestamp

Answer Source

The type of your function is (String, Int, Timestamp) => Int so it should return an Int.

Calendar.add is the last expression and therefore returned by the function, but its return type is Unit instead of Int. That's why you get an error telling you that.
