🏆 Sample Elasticsearch engine using Reactive Spring Data.

For High Level REST Client; please refer this repository :


  • Java 8+
  • Docker Compose
  • ElasticVue: Elasticsearch Firefox Extension


Please download ElasticSearch of 2.4.x if you are using Spring Boot 1.5.x. If you don't use correct versions then you should get following error:

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Received message from unsupported version: [2.0.0] minimal compatible version is: [5.0.0]

Also, if you are update Spring Boot to 2.x.x please download/run elasticsearch 6.8.3 version. If not you might face following issue:

failed to load elasticsearch nodes : org.elasticsearch.client.transport.NoNodeAvailableException: 
None of the configured nodes are available: [{#transport#-1}{uWHhZacNR9mbfojQOayyAg}{}{}]

Running the sample app

  • Install and run Elastic Server 6.8.3
cd docker 
docker compose -f docker-compose-elastic.yml up
  • Build the project and create an Image out of it
mvn clean install
docker compose up
  • Open browser and hit localhost:9200 and you should see below response
    name: "elasticsearch",
    cluster_name: "docker-cluster",
    cluster_uuid: "49K60TXkQ0CW7utAmS8RFg",
    version: {
        number: "7.12.1",
        build_flavor: "default",
        build_type: "docker",
        build_hash: "3186837139b9c6b6d23c3200870651f10d3343b7",
        build_date: "2021-04-20T20:56:39.040728659Z",
