Book recommendation


(Mohit Anchlia) #1

Which book would be best to read about how to write queries, filters etc?
On elasticsearch site it doesn't have good examples and is hard to follow
for me. I think it assumes general knowledge of search engines. I am
specifically looking for complicated nested searches, filters etc.

ElasticSearch is built on top of Lucene and most of the logic
pertaining to queries, filters, scoring, analyzers, etc., apply in
both tools (as well as Solr). That said, Lucene has terrible
documentation but a rich history in various forums. The Lucene in
Action book is excellent and so is the Lucene mailing list.

Cheers,

Ivan
