-===== Key Concepts ====== 
- 
-  * It uses the default configuration of the **solrfacetsearch** extension. 
-    * **ValueProvider**: Returns the item -usually a model- which is going to be indexed. For example: the approved products. 
-    * **SolrIndexedProperty**: Each of the fields which is going to be indexed. It has a fieldValueProvider. For example: The code and description of the product. 
-      * **DisplayName**: This a localized atribute and contains the name of the property to show in the frontend. 
-    * **FieldValueProvider**: Returns the value of a field which is going to be indexed. For example: It calculates the price which is going to be stored in the Solr Index. 
-    * **Facets**: Property used to filter the results of Solr. 
-      * **SolrValueRange**: It groups the possible values of a solrIndexedProperty under a label. For example: "€ 10-19" groups all the prices between EUR 10.0 and 19.99. It is used with facets. 
-      * **SolrValueRangeSet**: It contains many SolrValueRanges. It used by SolrIndexedProperties which are multivalued. 
-  * The **commerceservices** extension extends solrfacetsearch 
-  * **productSearchService** exposes methods to search products or other business objects. 
-  * **productSearchFacade** does the same but it returns ProductData 
-    * The **seachStateData** is used to initiated the search. 
-    * The **productSearchPageData** contains the query, the products, the paging information, available sorts and the applied filters (search breadcrumbs) and facets and available facets. 
- 
-  * **The solr index must only include purchasable products.** If you filter the returned products, the totals returned by Solr will be wrong. 
- 
-<WRAP center round tip> 
-To improve the performance, the Solr documents must include all the attributes required to build the product data object of an object. If you are using a search engine, there is no advantage on using it, if you look for values on the database after you get the data from the search engine.
