How to build full text search capabilities into your Mendix app with Elasticsearch



The need to effectively search in a Mendix application is a common requirement. In many cases, using full-text search would be preferred, however this is a rather specialized form of searching for which support is limited.

In this session, Mendix Software Engineer, Sjoerd Breur, will provide an overview of Elasticsearch capabilities, criteria to understand if this is the right solution for you, tips to approaching this integration, and how to leverage managed clusters to reduce operational complexity when getting started.
