The latest snapshot release of Imixs JEE Workflow now supports Apache Lucene Search Engine. With this new fulltext search the Imixs Workflow reached a new level of a flexible and powerful workflow platform.
The Lucene search integration is provided by a new plugin which contains all the necessary functionality to access and manage a search index. Workitems are automatically added into the search index during a workflow step. A fulltext search is performed considering the fine-grained access rights for workitems managed by the Imixs Workflow Engine. This means that a search result contains only workitems which are accessible by the current user. The access level to a single workitem is fully controlled by the Imixs Workflow Manager and can be managed using the Imixs Workflow Modeler. This makes it easy to setup complex and secure business process applications and support also the flexibility of a fulltext search engine.
