Can I write into MapR Streams, using Spark with Kafka API?

Right now I am trying to use the code given at the end of this post. It always throws and error saying closed channel exception, If I start a Kafka server on the server address I am passing in the program it tries to connect but still fails and gives error that failure getting partition metadata for the given topic, does it exist?


But to my understanding when reading from a MapR stream only the API is same and I should not actually have to have the brokers running (they are just dummies passed because the API wouldn't accept code with brokers listed). I also tried passing MapR streams master (for the given topic) as the broker but it gave a connection denied by the peer exception.


Does anybody have a sample spark program (Written in Java, haven't tried scala yet I would get to it soon) that reads from a MapR stream? or writes to it? or preferably both. Thanks in Advance
