Definition of SearchComponent

The execution of a query in Solr involves a number of steps, each of which is performed by a Solr plug-in called a search component. The query component itself is the most basic and common. A highlight component or spellcheck component are also common. The debug component is of course very popular with developers. Solr provides a rich, built-in list of default components. The developer can specify additional components to execute, revise the order of their execution, and even develop custom search components. Individual components can be enabled or disabled either through default parameter settings in the solr config file, or additional parameters in each query request.
