Installable with the Extension Manager


This application has been deprecated and moved to

Application Manager is an application based on the Application Manager API. It uses an application descriptor to aggregate XWiki pages into Applications. The Application Manager allows operations such as import/export and support features such as page translations, dependencies and the ability to link content instead of duplicating it.


Make sure you have installed the Application Manager API.

Import the Application Manager application in your XWiki using the Import feature in the Administration.

How to use

Point your browser to the XApp.WebHome page. From there you can create applications in XAppManager/CreateApplication page, see what applications you have in your wiki and delete, export, import new, etc. in XAppManager/WebHome page.

Application descriptor


This field contains all the pages the application contains. List these pages separated by character "|". You can also enter pattern based on SQL LIKE syntax (see between "[" and "]":

  • the application contains the page SpaceName.PageName, all the pages in the space Space1 and all the pages with names starting with MyClass

Translation documents

The documents Application Manager plugin will automatically register into XWiki.XWikiPreferences "Internationalization Document Bundles" field. This means all the key=value pair listed in these documents will be accessible using $msg.get("key") to easily translate the whole application when the wiki in multi-language mode. You can look at the Application Manager itself for an example on how to use it.





Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki
