Yes, ElasticSearch can be now installed and used much easier (that’s probably not a breaking news because I’m writing about it after one month since I have got a confirmed info) but summer is not the best time for writing a blog’s post 😉.)!
In this post I will focus on the dilemma – when exactly a .msi file can be useful and when it is better to stick to the old fashioned command line. At the end of the post I also added some personal experiences with ElasticSearch logs when working with ES as a service and when running it from a command line. Continue Reading
Last time we talked about creating indexes. We also searched our index in some easy manner. Today I would like to focus on other search-alike operations – bool queries.

Recently I wanted to run ElasticSearch (here I wrote how to do it) on the fresh copy of Windows. So, I downloaded the package, typed
in CMD and I got this error:

So I decided on ElasticSearch… my project is gonna be huge, right? 😛 Continue Reading
