Rest-high-level in Elasticsearch


Rest-high-level is built on top of low-level rest-client and is a method of communicating with Elasticsearch based on HTTP REST endpoints. This concept is majorly popular in the context of a Java-based Elasticsearch client. From day one, Elasticsearch supports transport clients for Java to communicate with Elasticsearch. In version 5.0, a low-level rest-client was released with lots of advantages over the existing transport client such as version independencies, increased stability, and lightweight JAR file libraries.

What it is used for

It is used for communicating with Elasticsearch HTTP REST endpoints in which marshalling and unmarshalling of response objects are handled by the Elasticsearch server itself.
