    Description

      Like rdd.isEmpty, adding isEmpty to DataSet would useful. 

      Some code without isEmpty:

      if (df.count = 0) { do_something }

       Some people add limit 1 for a performance reason:

      if (df.limit(1).rdd.isEmpty) { do_something }
      if (df.rdd.take(1).isEmpty) { do_something }

       

      If isEmpty is provided, the code will be perfect clean:

      if (df.isEmpty)  { do_something }
