plugin for elasticsearch v5

In a recent post we have seen how to create real integration tests. Those tests launch a real elasticsearch cluster, then run some tests you write with JUnit or your favorite test framework then stop the cluster. But sometimes, you may want to add existing plugins in your integration test cluster.

Elasticsearch 5.0 switched to Gradle in October 2015. You can obviously write a plugin using Gradle if you wish and you could benefit from all the goodies elasticsearch team wrote when it comes to integration tests and so on. My colleague, Alexander Reelsen aka Spinscale on Twitter, wrote a super nice template if you wish to create an Ingest plugin for 5.0. Hey! Wait! You wrote Ingest? What is that? Ingest is a new feature coming in elasticsearch 5.
