The SolrCloud Search Service Adapter connects the Intershop Commerce Management (ICM) with a Solr server that runs in cloud mode. It replaces the Solr search service adapter delivered with the ICM release and uses a more recent version of Solr and its features. The search index configuration and maintenance in the ICM back office is almost the same but uses the Schema- and ConfigSet-REST-APIs provided by the newer Solr server version. Thus, the Solr Server is separated and independent from the ICM application server cluster.
Intershop Commerce Management
SolrCloud Search Service Adapter
The following table lists the cartridges contained in the SolrCloud Adapter:
The main implementation cartridge of the adapter defining and registering the search service
Additional functionality for the commerce management application. It provides additional configuration options for the index management, especially for suggest and spell-check.
The cartridges need to be deployed as a replacement of the Solr cartridges delivered by default (ac_search_solr, ac_search_solr_bo). These are part of the ICM component set f_business or (better to say) intershop7 assembly. Please see Recipe - Setup Project Using SolR Cloud on how to setup your project to use the SolrCloud Search Service Adapter.
The SolrCloud Search Service Adapter requires a Solr server that runs in cloud mode. Please see the Guide - Deployment Solr Cloud Server on how to setup a Solr server for development or production. This guide also provides information on how to configure the ICM to use a Solr server.
The data replication of indexes has changed with this adapter implementation. The standard file replication with the index location at ICM's shared file system is not used anymore to replicate index data. Instead, the adapter comes with its own replication decorator. Please see Guide - Solr Replication for the description and configuration of the index replication with the SolrCloud server.
Synonyms and Stopwords are not Synchronized during initial Index Creation
Catalog View restrictions are not evaluated with ObjectSuggest type index suggestions
Online flag for brands is changed randomly while updating or rebuilding the ObjectSuggestType index
Solr Cloud Deployment Reports Class Collisions with platform:messaging
New created edit system Solr cloud indexes will lead to replication problems
The release reverts the solrcloud_config changes introduced with release 1.0.1. If release 1.0.1 or 1.0.2 was used, revert the changes to the build.gradle.
