Overview of this book

Building enterprise-grade distributed applications and executing systematic search operations call for a strong understanding of Elasticsearch and expertise in using its core APIs and latest features. This book will help you master the advanced functionalities of Elasticsearch and understand how you can develop a sophisticated, real-time search engine confidently. In addition to this, you'll also learn to run machine learning jobs in Elasticsearch to speed up routine tasks. You'll get started by learning to use Elasticsearch features on Hadoop and Spark and make search results faster, thereby improving the speed of query results and enhancing the customer experience. You'll then get up to speed with performing analytics by building a metrics pipeline, defining queries, and using Kibana for intuitive visualizations that help provide decision-makers with better insights. The book will later guide you through using Logstash with examples to collect, parse, and enrich logs before indexing them in Elasticsearch. By the end of this book, you will have comprehensive knowledge of advanced topics such as Apache Spark support, machine learning using Elasticsearch and scikit-learn, and real-time analytics, along with the expertise you need to increase business productivity, perform analytics, and get the very best out of Elasticsearch.

Terrific! We have understood the anatomy of the analyzer and have completed the analysis process. We have practiced different character filters, tokenizers, and token filters. We learned how to create a custom analyzer and use it in the _analyze API. Normalizers were also briefly introduced and practiced.

In the next chapter, we will focus on the search API. The basic functionality of the search API allows you to perform a search query and get back a search hit that matches the query. Elasticsearch supports the suggest API to help you improve the user experience. The explain APIs is also included; it computes the score explanation for a query and a specific document. This can provide useful feedback for scoring when you are looking for relevant issues. We will also discuss query Domain-Specific language (DSL) and high lighting feature in depth.
