I am trying to write my first java client to query the index and aggregate and store the result in another index.
I have downloaded the ES 5.0 and the lib inside that.
Can a Build a simple project (a standalone java application) without using maven with the jar files in the lib folder !!
I have never used maven or others - So can I just develop without those !!
BTW - I have tried to create a maven project with the help of google in netbeans with the following dependencies
However it is unable to locate the class PreBuiltTransportClient
