Sitecore 8 : Missing Sitecore.Commerce.Connect licenses message in Content Editor

I tried to use existing Sitecore 7 license along with Sitecore 8 installation.

I found the below message.

Required license is missing.
You require one of the following licenses to use the Sitecore Commerce Connect module. 'Sitecore.Commerce.Connect' or 'Sitecore.Commerce.ConnectPartner'

As we know any error message is not good in our life. So we approach our dear friend google and sitecore KB article for the solution.


                                1. Open the \App_Config\Include\Sitecore.Commerce.config file.
                                2. Comment out the following lines:
                                   <processor type="Sitecore.Commerce.Pipelines.ContentEditorLicenseWarning, Sitecore.Commerce"/>
                                 Not a rocket science but wanted to verify if this works. Here is 
                                Result below.

                                Search strategy for Multi site in sitecore

                                We can do following

                                • Separate core in Solr
                                • New index

                                Another way that you can manage sites with Sitecore 7 is NOT to use a core or index per site but rather use the built-in filters to simply filter your search by site. Luckily, this is also given to you for free with Sitecore 7. We ship with a IComputedIndexField called "Site" which stores anIList<string> of site names that each IIndexable belongs to. This allows you to search with LINQ like so:
                                var query = context.GetQueryable<Swan>.Where(i => i.Site.Contains("Lego"));

                                Select box
