For Developers

Extensible search UI implementations

It is now possible to provide your custom search UI implementation that will become available in the list of search engines under Administration > Applications > Search.

To achieve this, we have declared the org.xwiki.platform.search UI Extension point ID that accepts 3 parameters:

  1. title - the text to display for your implementation in the search engine select
  2. admin - a reference to the wiki page where you administrate your search implementation (ex: 'XWiki.SolrSearchAdmin')
  3. search - a reference to the search page that should be used when your search implementation is active (ex: 'Main.SolrSearch')

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

You may also want to import the default wiki XAR in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.

Always make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg and xwiki.properties files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note that you should add xwiki.store.migration=1 so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.

Issues specific to XWiki 4.5 RC 1

Existing custom search implementations

In case you were using a custom search implementation before this version which relied on previous naming and location conventions, you will need to make the necessary adjustments, meaning that you have to declare your implementation as an extension to the search application's extension point (see above).
