Wishlist Add-on For Hybris

Wish Lists (WLs) are collections of desired products saved by customers to their user account. Offering WLs is an effective way to reduce shopping cart abandonment and boosting sales. This feature gives customers the way to remind themselves of a product and also help merchants to measure  interest to it. WL sharing to friends, colleagues, etc. expands the shop audience. This concept is widely used by e-merchants and generally included into a default set of e-commerce functionality.

Hybris SOLR query builders and search relevance

In SAP Hybris Commerce, the requests for the SOLR search engine are created by Query Builders. Simply put, these components convert the user queries to SOLR queries. Certainly, it is not possible to explain the search results if you don’t know what SOLR request was generated and why it contains particular conditions in the particular form.   Unfortunately, the official documentation is very sparse and lack of examples. This article explains the differences between available query builders. You will also find a good compliment to one of the previous articles about the search relevancy.

The phrase search gives the product a higher position in the search results if any of the product attributes configured as searchable contain the whole user query. 

In this article, I present my PoC that demonstrates the better synonym handling and enhanced phrase search in hybris.
