Hi Krishna, Thanks for your interest contributing to PySpark! I don't personally use either of those IDEs so I'll leave that part for someone else to answer - but in general you can find the building spark documentation at http://spark.apache.org/docs/latest/building-spark.html which includes notes on how to run the Python tests as well. You will also probably want to check out the contributing to Spark guide at https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/SPARK/Contributing+to+Spark.
