Hi guys, I've recently gotten into Elasticsearch because the old search
engine at my site
is horribly slow and I need something better. I've done a lot of
work with Lucene and Solr in the past and particular I've been involved
with projects that make very deep changes to those systems because we
wanted to use them to drive a NER system or do statistical IR with advanced
topic modeling. This project is nothing like that, it's just a very
simple search engine that has to be easy to set up, easy to run, and easy
Overall the quality of documentation is great and the amount of
attention that is being paid to the "getting started" process is excellent,
particularly when compared with Solr, but I have been looking at the docs
for the java client API and there are some things I could use clarified...
The big is one is that there are some cross-cutting patterns in the API I
don't totally understand. For instance,
- what is the difference between index() and prepareIndex()?
- what is up with the execute(), actionGet() and get() methods of various
- are javadocs available for IndexRequest() and similar objects?
To put this all in context, so far I've had a great experience. Being
able to just unpack elastic search on my Windows laptop or an AWS instance
running Linux and start working is a real breath of fresh air!
