When user create a aggregator object in scala and pass the aggregator to Spark Dataset's agg() method, Spark's will initialize TypedAggregateExpression with the nodeName field as aggregator.getClass.getSimpleName. However, getSimpleName is not safe in scala environment, depending on how user creates the aggregator object. For example, if the aggregator class full qualified name is "com.my.company.MyUtils$myAgg$2$", the getSimpleName will throw java.lang.InternalError "Malformed class name". This has been reported in scalatest scalatest/scalatest#1044 and discussed in many scala upstream jiras such as SI-8110, SI-5425.
To fix this issue, we follow the solution in scalatest/scalatest#1044 to add safer version of getSimpleName as a util method, and TypedAggregateExpression will invoke this util method rather than getClass.getSimpleName.
