LogicalDOC is an Free/Libre document management system that is designed to handle and share documents within an organization.

LogicalDOC is a content repository, with Lucene indexing, jBPM workflow, and a set of automatic import procedures. The system was developed using Java technology.

History[edit]

In 2006 two developers with experience in commercial J2EE products decided to start a business called Logical Objects, with the mission to maintain and evolve the Open Source project Contineo.[2] After one year, Logical Objects decided to branch the old project and to start a completely new product called LogicalDOC.

In mid-2008, the first release of LogicalDOC was made available at SourceForge.[3] The first release was numbered 3.6[4] in order to continue the numeration from the old project.

In the 2010 LogicalDOC won the Infoworld Bossie Awards[5] in category: best open source applications.

License[edit]

LogicalDOC source code is distributed under GNU LGPLv3.[6]

Usage[edit]

LogicalDOC is a web-based document management application, so a web browser is needed to use it. Current web browsers that have been tested for compatibility with Logical Doc include: Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome. The web interface is built using Google Web Toolkit.

Architecture[edit]

LogicalDOC is developed using Java technology based on J2SE standards and the Tomcat application server. Therefore it can be installed and executed on various platforms (GNU/Linux, Windows, Mac OS X)

The LogicalDOC architecture is based on the following technologies:

Due to its lightweight architecture, LogicalDOC can work on a wide set of devices and can be used to implement Cloud/SaaS document management.

Data can be stored in a RDBMS (MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSQL, etc.)

General features[edit]

A document management system manages personal documents or business documentation, making it easier to find a previous document version. It enables searching by content, using document content indexing. LogicalDOC has currently been localized in 15 languages. LogicalDOC can be set up to support distinct full-text indexes for each supported language in order to apply specific indexing algorithms tailored to a particular language or variant.
