// create a client instance
$client = new Solarium\Client($adapter, $eventDispatcher, $config);

// get a select query instance
$query = $client->createSelect();

// get the facetset component
$facetSet = $query->getFacetSet();

// create two facet pivot instances
$facet = $facetSet->createFacetPivot('cat-popularity-instock');

$facet = $facetSet->createFacetPivot('popularity-cat');

// this executes the query and returns the result
$resultset = $client->select($query);

// display the total number of documents found by Solr
echo 'NumFound: '.$resultset->getNumFound();

// display facet results
$facetResult = $resultset->getFacetSet()->getFacet('cat-popularity-instock');
echo '<h3>cat &raquo; popularity &raquo; instock</h3>';
foreach ($facetResult as $pivot) {

$facetResult = $resultset->getFacetSet()->getFacet('popularity-cat');
echo '<h3>popularity &raquo; cat</h3>';
foreach ($facetResult as $pivot) {
