Demo project for Integration testing with Elasticsearch

This project shows how to run integration tests with elasticsearch.

Step 1

If you clone the repository and run

mvn clean install

It will fail because elasticsearch is not running yet:

[INFO] <JUnit4> says olá! Master seed: 6B97AD13CF87090
Executing 1 suite with 1 JVM.

Started J0 PID(4079@MacBook-Pro-David.local).
  1> 16:00:20,366 INFO  [f.p.t.e.t.i.ElasticsearchIT] Starting a client on http://localhost:9200
  1> 16:00:20,931 INFO  [f.p.t.e.t.i.ElasticsearchIT] Closing elasticsearch client.
ERROR   0.00s | ElasticsearchIT (suite) <<<
   > Throwable #1: Connection refused

Tests with failures [seed: 6B97AD13CF87090]:
  - (suite)

So the first step is to install elasticsearch locally. If you have Docker installed (which is expected for the next steps anyway), you can run from the project root:

docker run --rm -p 9200:9200


docker-compose up

Then you can run:

mvn clean install

Or run tests from your IDE.

Once done, stop your containers with:

docker-compose stop

Next step

Look at branch 02-start-docker-from-maven.
