25 == Extensible search UI implementations ==
26
27 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##.
28
29 To achieve this, we have declared the ##org.xwiki.platform.search## [[UI Extension>>extensions:Extension.UIExtension Module]] point ID that accepts 3 parameters:
30
31 1. ##title## - the text to display for your implementation in the search engine select
32 1. ##admin## - a reference to the wiki page where you administrate your search implementation (ex: 'XWiki.SolrSearchAdmin')
33 1. ##search## - a reference to the search page that should be used when your search implementation is active (ex: 'Main.SolrSearch')
34
35 == Deprecated and Retired projects ==
36
37 No project was retired.
38
39 == Upgrades ==
40
41 No library was upgraded.
42
43 == Miscellaneous ==
44
45 * Renamed the lucene search module and modified the search-ui module. As part of the refactorings performed on the search application, the ##xwiki-platform-search-lucene## module has now been renamed to ##xwiki-platform-search-lucene-api##. Also, pages related to Lucene search that were previously inside ##xwiki-platform-search-ui## have now been moved to the new ##xwiki-platform-search-lucene-ui## module.(((
46 If you were depending in your application on these modules/pages, please update your references accordingly. For more details on the new layout, lease see {{jira style="enum" url="https://jira.xwiki.org"}}XWIKI-8766{{/jira}}.

86 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.

91 === Existing custom search implementations ===
92
93 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)>>||anchor="HExtensiblesearchUIimplementations"]].
