ElasticSearch

To use ElasticSearch as Ebean's document store we need to add configuration for ebean.docstore properties like the example below:

To test using a ElasticSearch docker container we set ebean.docstore.elastic.version property like the example below. ebean-test will then ensure that ElasticSearch is running as a docker container.

ebean:
  test:
    platform: h2
    ddlMode: dropCreate # none | dropCreate | migrations | create
    dbName: myapp

  docstore:
    url: http://127.0.0.1:9201
    active: true
    generateMapping: true
    dropCreate: true

    elastic: # For testing using docker container
      version: 5.6.0
      port: 9201

In terms of logging we can see:

21:57:06.587 INFO  io.ebean.docker.commands.Commands - Start container ut_elastic with port:9201

When using ElasticSearch by itself and not with another database leave out the ebean.test.platform section like:

ebean:
  docstore:
    url: http://127.0.0.1:9201
    active: true
    generateMapping: true
    dropCreate: true

    elastic:
      version: 5.6.0
      port: 9201

ebean-elastic dependency

Add ebean-elastic as a dependency.

<dependency>
  <groupId>io.ebean</groupId>
  <artifactId>ebean-elastic</artifactId>
  <version>12.1.1</version>
</dependency>

Configuration properties
