Search not very acurate.

Hello,


I find that the search box does not return good results.

You may already aware of this but I just wanted to make sure.


Example:


Search for a product with full name:

samsung-ln26d450-26-inch-720p-60hz-lcd-hdtv-(black)
URL: http://demo.virtocommerce.com/en-us/search?q=samsung-ln26d450-26-inch-720p-60hz-lcd-hdtv-%28black%29
Result: Custom Error Page shown


Search for the same product with the product code: ln26d450

URL: http://demo.virtocommerce.com/en-us/search?q=ln26d450
Result: There are no results available.


Have you plans to improve this soon?


Mark.





Hi Mark,


it seems like we do have that fixed already in our dev envrionment (http://virtocommerce-test.cloudapp.net/). At least the second query. The first one still seems to give issues. Thanks for letting us know, we'll get on it.

Cool.

 

We will also be moving to the newest Elastic Search Server, so it should help improve search functionality.

Alright, we updated our dev branch to use elastic search 1.1.1 and also modified elastic search provider to use match instead of simple boolean query which now handles the search much better.

What were the implications of selecting ElasticSearch since it feels kinda out of place being a Java-based product? Have you considered anything else but settled with ES for some specific reason?


What it takes to swap ES out for another, preferrably .NET based search solution?

Elastic Search is one of the best search products on the market, so that was the reason to pick it. 


Virto Commerce is not specifically tied to ES, it is implemented as a plugin and another search product can be easily integrated. If you can find .net based search then let us know and we'll evaluate adding support for it.
