The Cargo Daemon – For ‘intense’ redeployments with Maven

My NLJUG presentation on elasticsearch

Last thursday I gave a talk about elasticsearch on the Dutch Java User Group conference (JFall) called “Full text search met ElasticSearch in de praktijk”. Yes it’s in Dutch but I still want to share it with you, it might contain some useful tips and tricks.
