What is Solr Search Engine Bundle?

This week, I would like to highlight one of the powerful features within eZ Platform, the support for Solr search. You can view the full details about this bundle on our documentation site.

Ezplatform-solr-search-engine, as the package is called, aims to be a transparent drop-in replacement for the SQL-based "Legacy" search engine powering eZ Platform Search API by default. When you enable Solr and re-index your content, all your existing Search queries using SearchService will be powered by Solr automatically. This allows you to scale up your eZ Platform installation and be able to continue development locally against SQL engine, and have a test infrastructure, Staging and Prod powered by Solr.”

Tip: eZ Platform 1.10 now supports faceted search, documentation about this can be found here.
