Remote search server on a development environment after FEP7

Quick note just to save this small information. IBM support is telling us that it’s impossible to use Commerce Developer with an external Solr server. After some research I found which config file to change in order to change which server it will call.

[WCDEV_INSTALL]\wasprofile\config\cells\localhost\nodes\localhost\servers\server1\namebindings.xml

This file has multiple entries for configuring the search. Changing the com.ibm.commerce.foundation.server.services.search.url namebinding stringToBind to your solr server url will enable you to use an remote webserver in FEP7 and FEP8 atleast.
