Since V11, DQL leverages FT Search for certain queries.
In many cases it works well but in some cases, FT Search can be (much) slower than view scan or raw Nsfscan (depending on the amount of returned data for ex).
DomQuery utility and -e explain option help developers a lot to determine which query path is the best for app developers.
In Java / LS / ... API we have a way to prevent DQL from leveraging views to perform queries,
SetNoViews method existing in V11 : https://help.hcltechsw.com/dom_designer/11.0.0/appdev/builds/H_SETNOVIEWS_METHOD_JAVA.html
It would be cool to have a similar option to prevent DQL from leveraging FT Index., a SetNoFT method.
