I'm currently writing suggestion wrappers for Clojure ES-client called Elastisch - it uses Java native client v.1.7.2 underhood.
When i tried to write simple completion suggest with TransportClient.suggest function then i'm getting empty response, but it works with SuggestRequestBuilder. Here's my pseudo-Java translations of my Clojure code
// completion query
CompletionSuggestionBuilder compBuilder = new CompletionSuggestionBuilder("my_suggest");
SuggestRequest req = new SuggestRequest(indices);
client.suggest(req).actionGet() ;; got empty object here
I got expected results using this Java code
SuggestRequestBuilder suggestRequestBuilder = client
SuggestResponse suggestResponse = suggestRequestBuilder.execute().actionGet(); ;;matches cURL example
Why my first example returns empty result? Do i miss something when building request?
"Elastisch" uses TransportClient functions for search and i would like to keep similar pattern and i'm wondering how i could get my first example to match with cURL and my second example.
