  • Course Elastic Search Fundamentals : Content

    In the course Elastic Search Fundamentals participants learn to use the Apache Lucene based search engine Elastic Search for Enterprise queries on different types of data. Elastic Search has a Rest API with which you can quickly retrieve search results in JSON format. Elastic Search however also supports other data formats such as XML.

    Elastic Search Intro

    Attention is paid to the different ways in which Elastic Search can be deployed such as standalone, in a cluster, embedded or as a container. Also discussed is the fundamental unit of an Elastic Search document that can represent any type of relevant application data.

    Indices and Mappings

    Next it is explained what indices and mappings are and which data types can be assigned to fields. Various Elastic Search APIs are covered such as the Cluster APIs, the Indices APIs, the term vectors API and the bulk document API.

    Query DSL

    Attention is also paid to the Query DSL with which various queries can be executed such as full text queries, term level queries and geo queries. And explained is how mutations can be performed with queries.

    Java Client API

    Next attention is paid to how Elastic Search can be controlled from a Java application with Spring and Hibernate. Both the Java client API and the Java Rest Client are discussed.

    Elastic Stack

    The course concludes with an overview of the Elastic Stack with supporting applications and tools such as Kibana for visualization, Beats, Logstash and Testing Kit.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
