join {SparkR}R Documentation



Joins two SparkDataFrames based on the given join expression.


## S4 method for signature 'SparkDataFrame,SparkDataFrame'
join(x, y, joinExpr = NULL, joinType = NULL)



A SparkDataFrame


A SparkDataFrame


(Optional) The expression used to perform the join. joinExpr must be a Column expression. If joinExpr is omitted, the default, inner join is attempted and an error is thrown if it would be a Cartesian Product. For Cartesian join, use crossJoin instead.


The type of join to perform, default 'inner'. Must be one of: 'inner', 'cross', 'outer', 'full', 'full_outer', 'left', 'left_outer', 'right', 'right_outer', 'left_semi', or 'left_anti'.


A SparkDataFrame containing the result of the join operation.
