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.

You can convert OpenDocumentText (ODT) to the internally used Docbook XML and from there to any of the other formats supported by the component (like RST, Wiki markup or ezxml). The other way around works in addition, read any format supported by Document and convert it to ODT. You can nicely style the generated document using a CSS sub-set and even generate a PDF with the very same style settings.

This article describes in detail the principles and functions of the new cache system present in eZ Publish 4.1. Overall the idea can be summarised as follows: instead of deleting cache elements and then regenerate them across concurrent requests, the logic is reversed to a refresh algorithm. Basically a cache element will be marked as invalid but not deleted until a new version is ready. During the generation of the new cache element, the old version will still be served until it is ready.
