New functionality and enhancements

  • Added database storage. Besides filesystem-storage, Docmenta now supports storing products in an embedded database (Apache Derby) or in a stand-alone relational database. See chapter 'Managing products' in the reference manual for more information.

    Note that database storage should work with all database systems that are supported by Hibernate 3.6 and that support the Blob and Clob datatype. However, Docmenta has only been tested with following databases:
    • Apache Derby (tested version: 10.10.1.1)
    • MySQL (tested version: 5.5.27)
    • PostgreSQL (tested version: 9.3.5.1)
    • Oracle (tested version: Oracle 11gR2 Express)
    • MS SQLServer (tested version: SQLServer 2008 Express)
    Note that for stand-alone database storage the database vendor's JDBC-driver has to be available in the classpath of the web-server.
    PostgreSQL Hint:
    If you are running a PostgreSQL database and get the error message "java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Blob may not be manipulated from creating session", then try switching the web-server's JAVA environment from JRE to JDK (it has been experienced that this resolved the issue).
  • Added possibility to enable/disable products.
  • Added possibility to copy products (and to change the storage format). See 'Copying a product' in the reference manual for more information.
  • Added Quick-Links as a shortcut for creating links. See 'Referencing sections' in the tutorial for more information.
  • Added inter-publication link feature to support easy creation of links between different publications. See 'Inter-publication links' in the tutorial for an example.
  • Added HTML 5 Drag-and-Drop Upload.
  • Added thumbnail size "Big" for Image preview.
  • Added Gentext-inclusion. See 'Inline inclusions' in the tutorial and 'Gentext configuration' in the reference manual for more information.
  • Improved user-ID generation.
  • PDF formatting engine upgraded from Apache FOP version 1.0 to 1.1.
  • GUI framework upgraded to ZK EE version 6.5.7.
  • Content editor upgraded to TinyMCE version 3.5.11. Old TinyMCE version 3.5.8.b is no longer contained in the Docmenta installation package. It can be downloaded and installed as plug-in.
  • Documentation updated (tutorial and reference manual).

Bug-fixes

  • Fixed Search-Replace issue.
  • Fixed editor resize issue in IE.
  • Fixed content selection in translation mode.
  • Fixed import of nodes with translated content.

More bugs may be fixed due to the upgrade of the GUI framework and content editor.
