List<Product> product = new List<Product>();

Query Processor:The query processor is the third major component of the search architecture. The query processor is the portion of the search architecture that users directly interface with. It is what accepts queries entered into the search box, translates them into programmatic logic, delivers requests to the index engine, and returns results. Databases:The fourth and final components of the search infrastructure are databases. Almost all data in Sha…
