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 == Renamed the lucene search module and modified the search-ui module ==
36
37 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.
38
39 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="http://jira.xwiki.org"}}XWIKI-8766{{/jira}}.

94 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.
