Using the elasticsearch test classes

First, you need to include the testing dependency in your project. If you use maven and its pom.xml file, it looks like this

<dependencies>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.carrotsearch.randomizedtesting</groupId>
    <artifactId>randomizedtesting-runner</artifactId>
    <version>${randomizedtesting-runner.version}</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
  </dependency>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.lucene</groupId>
    <artifactId>lucene-test-framework</artifactId>
    <version>${lucene.version}</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
  </dependency>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>org.elasticsearch</groupId>
    <artifactId>elasticsearch</artifactId>
    <version>${elasticsearch.version}</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
    <type>test-jar</type>
  </dependency>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>org.elasticsearch</groupId>
    <artifactId>elasticsearch</artifactId>
    <version>${elasticsearch.version}</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
  </dependency>
</dependencies>

Replace the elasticsearch version and the lucene versions with the current elasticsearch version and its accompanying lucene release. And replace the "randomizedtesting version" with the version that the current elasticsearch uses.

They already have a couple of classes, you can inherit from in your own test classes. The advantages of doing so is having already defined loggers, the whole randomized infrastructure is set up already.
