This seems like a very useful improvement and will save us many current 

Any specific reason for why was this closed?

> Dynamically add jar into Spark Driver's classpath.
> --------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: SPARK-5377
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-5377
>             Project: Spark
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Spark Core
>    Affects Versions: 1.2.0
>            Reporter: Chengxiang Li
>            Priority: Major
> Spark support dynamically add jar to executor classpath through 
> SparkContext::addJar(), while it does not support dynamically add jar into 
> driver classpath. In most case(if not all the case), user dynamically add jar 
> with SparkContext::addJar()  because some classes from the jar would be 
> referred in upcoming Spark job, which means the classes need to be loaded in 
> Spark driver side either,e.g during serialization. I think it make sense to 
> add an API to add jar into driver classpath, or just make it available in 
> SparkContext::addJar(). HIVE-9410 is a real case from Hive on Spark.
