[2.2.0] [Java] Embedded Server + Groovy scripts

For testing purposes, I need to run a groovy script in an update request against the embedded server. My problem is that I am not able to load a Groove Script Engine. I added this maven dependency:


But I am still getting this error when I try to make a call:

"Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: script_lang not supported [groovy]
at org.elasticsearch.script.ScriptService.getScriptEngineServiceForLang(ScriptService.java:211)
at org.elasticsearch.script.ScriptService.compile(ScriptService.java:241)
at org.elasticsearch.script.ScriptService.executable(ScriptService.java:441)
at org.elasticsearch.action.update.UpdateHelper.executeScript(UpdateHelper.java:249)"

Is there any way to run a groovy script in Embedded ES 2.2.0 using Java Client?

My node configuration is like that:

            .put("client.transport.ping_timeout", "5s")
            .put("path.home", "test")
            .put("number_of_shards", 1)
            .put("http.enabled", false)

Embedding elasticsearch is not supported anymore.

So, there is not a solution for my problem even if I use 2.2.0? What is the current proposition for integration testing - run a stand-alone server?

There are plenty of threads about integration testing on this forum.

In short: run your tests against an external server.

If you are using maven, the maven elasticsearch plugin is really nice.
