In reading https://www.elastic.co/blog/elasticsearch-the-server - I understand that embedded ES isn't a supported configuration. While it's easy enough to add this functionality back in myself, there doesn't seem to be a way to pull in ES plugins.
My use case is to: start up an embedded ES for integration tests, configure it with checked in settings and mappings and index a test set of documents. This way I can fully test the various queries my system generates against known data, which is really helpful since regressions here aren't acceptable to my users.
I know I could treat ES like an external DB and run tests against that, but it'd be unfortunate to have to introduce all the environment-related issues which come along with this approach.
Is it possible to start publishing plugin artifacts to a maven repository again?
