New user saying hello


(Jondow) #1

Hi all,

Firstly, I'm a developer on an RMM tool that uses Java technology on
the server side. Our server product comprises a 'pure Java' component,
and a Grails-based web application for managing the 'pure Java'
component. I was going to use the Grails Searchable plugin for
indexing entries in our DB to provide a more performant and powerful
search experience. Currently we've gotten away with brute force SQL
'searching' but obviously this does not scale and I need to do due
diligence and refactor the search aspect appropriately.

I 'stumbled' upon ES and am totally sold after spending the afternoon
playing with it on my local machine and reading through the various
documents. I have also watched the videos on the site. Shay, it is
excellent work you are doing. Well done! Very excited for the
evolution of this project.

I'll follow up this post with some basic questions that I need a point
in the right direction on.

Heya,

The Grails searchable plugin is built on top Compass, which I wrote as
well :). I hope there will be a good grails plugin for elasticsearch, seems
like people are working on it (someone posted something on the grails
mailing list, you can ping them).

Nice to have you onboard!
