You just install it, tweak it, and get on with your work.
Elasticsearch in Action teaches you how to write applications that deliver professional quality search. As you read, you'll learn to add basic search features to any application, enhance search results with predictive analysis and relevancy ranking, and use saved data from prior searches to give users a custom experience.
