Vespa sample application - text search tutorial

This sample application contains the code for the text search tutorial. Please refer to the text search tutorial for more information.

Executable example:

$ git clone --depth 1
$ VESPA_SAMPLE_APPS=`pwd`/sample-apps
$ cd $VESPA_SAMPLE_APPS/text-search && mvn clean package
$ docker run --detach --name vespa --hostname vespa-container --privileged \
  --volume $VESPA_SAMPLE_APPS:/apps --publish 8080:8080 vespaengine/vespa

Wait for the configserver to start:

$ docker exec vespa bash -c 'curl -s --head http://localhost:19071/ApplicationStatus'

Deploy the application:

$ docker exec vespa bash -c '/opt/vespa/bin/vespa-deploy prepare /apps/text-search/target/ && \
    /opt/vespa/bin/vespa-deploy activate'

Wait for the application to start:

$ docker exec vespa bash -c 'java -jar /opt/vespa/lib/jars/vespa-http-client-jar-with-dependencies.jar \
    --file /apps/text-search/msmarco/vespa.json --host localhost --port 8080'
