Nuxeo EP (Enterprise Platform) is the server-side, Java EE-based part of the Nuxeo Enterprise Content Management platform. It provides a framework and set of components to address document management and collaboration needs, including metadata/taxonomies, versioning, lifecyle management, workflow, relations, searching, reporting, transformation, auditing, and retention. Its flexible extension system, based on OSGi, allows developers to quickly configure and extend the platform by creating new components. Its default Web user interface, based on the JSF standard, uses AJAX to create a pleasant user experience. It can also be accessed by a rich client interface through the use of Web services, for instance using the Eclipse-based Nuxeo RCP rich client platform.


The following new features have been added: document locking; archive record management, user notifications and send by email; custom versioning, hierarchical directories; clean URLs; a refactored search service that can use different search engine backends; RSS feeds; paginated lists and better multi-selection handling; improved users management screens; better comments service; a workspace creation wizard; the ability to block rights inheritance; and new workflows.
