Projects / LogicalDOC


LogicalDOC is a Web-based document management system that is easy to use and learn. Its architecture leverages best-of-breed Java technology to achieve a powerful and flexible solution. It supports its users with a powerful search engine (Lucene), Web service interface (JAX-WS via CXF) compatible with .NET and PHP, versioning, annotation on documents, a WebDAV interface, importing and exporting from .zip files. Documents can be organized into hierarchical folders, searched using the integrated search engine, or browsed by Tag. The system is extensible thanks to the technologies used (Spring-Hibernate) and its plugin architecture.

            After extensive testing i can say that LogicalDOC is a application stable and performant, also with respect to other applications written in Java is quite thrifty in the use of the memory.
            Wonderful project! Thanks for amazing work!

            The download and installation went well and without problems.
            I tested various DMS up until now, and LogicalDOC is truly impressive in terms of functionality, stability, flexibility, and documentation.
            Since it is based on Java, may require more resources than a PHP solution, but in general, I prefer it over other DMS solutions that i know.

            I agree, it was a breeze and I have really enjoyed working with the product. I like the fact that I can use PostgreSQL with the software!

            Installs like a breeze
            LogicalDOC installs like a breeze. Of course, you need to have Tomcat working already to use this. Installing Tomcat is not rocket science, though. But installing the provided war file was easy and it was running in ten minutes or less.
