We are currently looking for a good way to create and set processors in our java app.
Is there a JAVA API we are missing for this? Right now we are building the pipeline parameters using XContentBuilder. One suggestion we have is just make implementation of the Processor interface for each processor we want included in the pipeline. E.g. RemoveProcessor. Given that ES ships with those, before we start writing our own implementations we thought we'd ask if there already is a solution for this, besides XContent.
I did go through
but we don't actually need custom processors, just checking whether the XContent is the only good way to inject existing ones.
