Elastic Search on google App engine


(user515) #1

Is elastic search compatible with google appengine? Are any examples
available?

Hi,

I do not think this would be possible as appengine has several limitations
in its Java API, for example it does not permit to create new instance of
ThreadPoolExecutor (see more here:
http://code.google.com/appengine/docs/java/runtime.html#The_Sandbox).

Lukas

In the link provided below kimchy shows how to implement search on
appengine with compass. He suggests it is possible to turn of threads
to comply with the sandbox limitations. Since compass and elastic
search are both based on lucene shouldn't something similar be
possible?

Nope, elasticsearch is not aimed at running on GAE.
