I'm using "org.elasticsearch" % "elasticsearch" % "1.0.0.Beta2" in my scala project and hitting the following error on compile:

[info] Compiling 183 Scala sources to /home/dev/projects/core/target/scala-2.10/classes...
[warn] Class org.elasticsearch.common.joda.convert.FromString not found - continuing with a stub.

Joda 2.3 has this in the pom

      <optional>true</optional><!-- mandatory in Scala -->

and I can see that the DateTime object is depending on one of the annotations found therein. So, I think for the ES stuff to work correctly in scala land, the joda-convert library will also need to be shaded into the final jar.

The easy temporary fix is to create the missing file (org.elasticsearch.common.joda.convert.FromString) in my own project structure with the same contents as in the joda-convert project:

package org.elasticsearch.common.joda.convert;

import java.lang.annotation.ElementType;
import java.lang.annotation.Retention;
import java.lang.annotation.RetentionPolicy;
import java.lang.annotation.Target;

@Target({ElementType.METHOD, ElementType.CONSTRUCTOR })
public @interface FromString {

I think scala is broken then - if annotation is missing on classpath it should be skipped. That's part of Java specification..
