At the end of this series, you will have been exposed all details on how it works, and be able to make an advanced usage, in various context, of this enterprise-grade search plug-in. This series will serve as a base for a talk on the subject at the eZ Conference 2010, in Berlin. As well as the Libre Software meeting.
Read the first part here : Advanced development with eZ Find - part 1 : Datatypes in Solr and eZ Find
The first part of this tutorial described the low-level mechanisms of eZ Find, and the way eZ Publish attributes ( names, types ) and Solr fields are mapped. This post describes how eZ Find can dramatically ease development of some functionalities ( avoiding complex template operators and heavy SQL queries ) by automatically indexing additional fields in Solr when an object is published, which can in turn be leveraged for facetting or advanced filtering.
