JSR 352 (Batch for Java) mass indexing job

A JSR 352 mass indexing job was added, adding in particular the ability to restart from a checkpoint when indexing fails.

See the documentation for more information, and this blog post for an introduction to JSR 352 in Hibernate Search.

JBoss modules now distributed as feature packs

The Hibernate Search JBoss Modules, for use in WildFly or JBoss EAP, are now distributed as WildFly feature packs, which makes provisioning a WildFly server with an upgraded Hibernate Search version easier than ever. The feature packs can also be consumed using WildFly Swarm.

Also, the modules are now distributed as multiple feature packs, which means that components are split in fine grained packages, allowing you to pick only the parts you will need. For example, you won’t need to add the Elasticsearch clients to your server if you only use Lucene.

See the documentation for more information on the available feature packs and how to consume them.
