I'm just scratching the surface of ES, so apologies if this is pedantic...
I've got it installed on my dev server, created an index, can get results on the command line, have a basic understanding of how it works. All good there.
My ultimate idea is to use it for site search. Which means I'll need to access ES results from the web somehow.
On this page a guy is describing how to pass it thru different server application layers:
What I am getting at is, is it possible to safely access ES results with no server side abstraction layer?
or is this a really ugly newb question that indicates a total misunderstanding of the technology?
