Prefaceedit

This section describes the Groovy API elasticsearch provides. All elasticsearch APIs are executed using a GClient, and are completely asynchronous in nature (they either accept a listener, or return a future).

The Groovy API is a wrapper on top of the Java API exposing it in a groovier manner. The execution options for each API follow a similar manner and covered in API Anatomy.

Maven Repositoryedit

The Groovy API is hosted on Maven Central.

For example, you can define the latest version in your pom.xml file:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.elasticsearch</groupId>
    <artifactId>elasticsearch-groovy</artifactId>
    <version>5.6.3</version>
</dependency>
