All About ElasticSearch Scripting

This is taken from the ElasticSearch blog of a similar name, all about scripting.

There is a lot of good news in here. This is as of the 1.3 branch:

  • Dynamic scripting disable by default for security
  • Moving from MVEL to Groovy
  • Added Lucene Expressions
  • field_value_factor functions

Here's an earlier article about scripting and script security.

I personally haven't done that much with ElasticSearch scripting, but I need to start playing with it to see how it can help. I'd encourage you to do the same.
