Local fix

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    WebSphere Commerce users on v7.0 who use Feature Pack 3
    WebSphere Commerce Search.
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    Some search keywords could result in WebSphere Commerce passing
    0 length keywords to Solr search, resulting in parsing errors.
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    No search results or an error page are returned to the user.
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • This iFix now corrects the reported issue by handling empty
    input search terms properly so as to avoid adding empty search
    term into the search request, causing two "+" signs side by side
    in the search expression.
