Local fix

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    All WC 7.0 Feature Pack 4 users who desire to use multiple
    facets in a SOLR query
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    Add runtime support for search query pre and post expression
    processor in Feature Pack 4
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    Minimal, enhancement request for the solr framework
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • This iFix contains code logic to enable your multi-select facet
    search runtime customization:
    
    - GetData tag is now able to handle multi-value URL parameter.
     You can now use this feature to pass in several facet
    name-value pair using the same parameter name in the URL, while
    being able to re-use the existing expression builder template
    from your storefront JSP.
    - Adding expression pre-processor and post-processor support in
    through the search runtime.  This allows you to modify the
    SolrQuery request object right before sending the SOLR,  and
    performing additional customization around QueryResponse object
    from SOLR.   This is where the multi-select facet customization
    logic should go.
    
    In order to enable this feature,  the query section of a search
    profile in the wc-search.xml file should be updated with the
    following:
    
    <!--
                                     List of search query
    pre-processors.
    
                                     A query pre-processor can be
    used to modify the SolrQuery object right before sending to Solr
    server for processing.
    
                                     All query pre-processor must
    extend from <code>AbstractSolrSearchQueryPreprocessor</code>
    class and implements
    
     <code>SearchQueryPreprocessor</code> interface in order to
    allow initialization of the <code>iSelectionCriteria</code>
                                     and <code>iSolrQuery</code>
    object reference.
    
                                     For example:
    
                                     <_config:preprocessor
    classname="com.ibm.commerce.catalog.facade.server.services.searc
    h.query.solr.SolrSearchSampleQueryPreprocessor" />
                           -->
    
                           <!--
                                     List of search query
    post-processors.
    
                                     A query post-processor can be
    used to modify the physical data object,
    SolrEntityContainerImpl, right after the
                                     QueryResponse is returned from
    the Solr server.
    
                                     All query post-processor must
    extend from <code>AbstractSolrSearchQueryPostprocessor</code>
    class and implements
    
     <code>SearchQueryPostprocessor</code> interface in order to
    allow initialization of the <code>iSelectionCriteria</code>,
                                    <code>iQueryResponse</code>, and
    <code>iResponseObject</code> object reference.
    
                                     For example:
    
                                     <_config:postprocessor
    classname="com.ibm.commerce.catalog.facade.server.services.searc
    h.query.solr.SolrSearchSampleQueryPostprocessor" />
                           -->
    
                   </_config:query>
