That's disappointing. Embedded elasticsearch was fantastic for unit testing search code.

According to that post (ES Embedded should still work and it's just that they do not recommend it.

I've seen here in es-hadoop project they still use ES embedded. So I guess it should be fine to use ES embedded for unit tests.
