    Hi Bishnupad,

    The POM is a sort of config file to work with Maven. POM is in the xml format where you add your dependencies on the project and other parameters. The SBT is a build tool for Scala. Even though you can run commands in Scala using the Spark shell, to build Scala applications and prepare Scala jars, you will need the SBT. If you have already downloaded the User Interface like Eclipse for Scala, you probably already have SBT with you.

    Here is a full reference for the POM used with Maven,

    Hope this answers your questions, all the best!
