Issues faced during ES upgrade from 1.4.2 to 2.3.2


We had ElasticSearch with 1.4.2 and had code using TransportClient.
We are now trying to upgrade to ES 2.3.2 but I am facing several issues with the jar files.

This is the code used to connect to ES server using TransportClient
Settings settings = Settings.settingsBuilder()
.put( "", OnedataProperties.ES_CLUSTER_NAME )
.put( "node.http.enabled", nodeHttpEnable ).put( "gateway.type", gatewaytype )
.put( "client.transport.sniff", transportSnif ).put( "", indexStortype )
client = TransportClient.builder().settings( settings ).build();
( (TransportClient) client ).addTransportAddress( new InetSocketTransportAddress( InetAddress
.getByName( "XX.XX.XX.XX" ), 9300 ) );

With 1.4.2, I had included only lucene-core, lucene-analyzers-common, guava and elasticsearch jar files in my client application and it was working fine. After upgrade, I have upgraded the version of the 4 jar files to use the ones in sync with ES 2.3.2. However, when I run my application, it keeps throwing me dependency errors one by one - stating that it needs jsr166e-1.1.0.jar, t-digest-3.0.jar, netty.jar etc. The list is growing and seems endless.

Can you please let me know

  1. Is there a thin client version of the ElasticSearch library that can be included in the client application?
  2. What is the complete list of jar files that I need to include in my client application to work with ES 2.3.2?
  3. I have used the default elasticsearch.yml file that comes with the installation. Are there any changes that need to be done in the yml file?


Not yet.

You should use Maven or Gradle to get the dependencies.

Here we go:

If you want to be able to access Elasticsearch from another machine, you'll have to define

Download the source code. git checkout the version you need. Then run the command.
