Need for speed with eZ Find

This tutorial should give eZ Publish developers some new ideas on how to use eZ Find. The ever growing need for speed can be achieved by using eZ Find search function instead of standard content list/tree fetch functions. Solr engine, used by eZ Find, is far more superior regarding read speed than mysql (at least in the way eZ Publish uses them). This fact becomes apparent when dealing with 10 or 100 thousands of objects in your database with complicated eZ Publish SQL queries starting to slow down rapidly. If you need text search capabilities difference in read speed becomes even more obvious.
