Explanation of error "java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/spark/sql/sources/v2/ReadSupport"
In Neo4j 4.x, if you are using the Databricks Run-time of Spark and the neo4j-spark-connector. You may encounter either of these errors when trying to read or write to neo4j via the spark-connector:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: Failed to find data source: org.neo4j.spark.DataSource
One possible explanation is you are using an incompatible connector, or you built it yourself, and something went wrong.
To resolve this, do the following:
Remove all existing neo4j_connector jars from the Databricks UI.
Add the relevant jar that matches both the Spark & Scala runtimes. You don’t need to compile it yourself. Instead, you can download the artefact from here: https://github.com/neo4j-contrib/neo4j-spark-connector/releases
FYI - To help you decide on the correct jar, we have a compatibility matrix here: https://neo4j.com/developer/spark/overview/#_compatibility
