Bulk import into Neo4j from Spark

Hi Michael,

I'm currently using Spark as the tool to process raw data, getting it into a format that can be imported into Neo4j. I'm aware of the neo4j-admin import tool but wondering that Spark's the better option. I ran into a LockClient deadlock situation using mergeEdgeList function in the neo4j-spark connector.

I've read a few posts that using mergeEdgeList from the neo4j-spark connector typically results in deadlock problems with large amount of data.

Could you confirm that it's not possible to bulk import data via Spark with neo4j-spark connector ? Is there a newer API that overcame the deadlock issue?

Thank you so much for your time and answer.
