Also called parametric search, an advanced search provides search options for each property specified in the form handler’s advancedSearchPropertyNames property. The advanced query is built from options selected by users of the search form to further refine the catalog search.

For example, an advanced search might be based on a description, chef, and set of ingredients: find all recipes with the keyword bread machine where the chef is Grandma and the ingredients include whole wheat flour.

Advanced search lets you manipulate HashMaps; it can also allow queries that involve other data types such as string, numeric, Boolean, and date.
