Creating an Index via Java API and JSON String

Hi guys,

I'm trying to use the Java API to help embed ElasticSearch in my tests. I'm seem to be getting stuck with setting the "settings" on the index. I have a JSON String:


And I'm basically calling:

ciReq = createIndexRequest(
  .settings(index.settings) //JSON String as shown above

return idxClient.create(ciReq).actionGet().acknowledged()

I've tried the JSON in a number of formats based on examples that I've seen. But nothing seems to have an effect on the created index. The logs always come back with something like this:

... [Oddball] creating Index [myindex], shards [5]/[1]

And the index is not in-memory.

Any help would be much appreciated.
