Dependency Management

For development using the Liferay Platform, update Liferay Workspace to use the  latest dependencies, by adding the following line to the build.gradle file:

dependencies {
	compileOnly group: "com.liferay.portal", name: "release.portal.api"

All portal dependencies are now defined with a single declaration. When using an IDE such as Eclipse or IntelliJ all apis are immediately available in autocomplete for immediate use.  

By setting a product info key property it will be possible to update all dependencies to a new version by updating the liferay.workspace.product property in the liferay workspace projects file:

liferay.workspace.product = portal-7.4-ga70

When using an IDE such as Eclipse or IntelliJ all apis are immediately available in autocomplete for immediate use.


Experience Building

Display only translated pages on sitemap.xml

Currently, all sites current languages are displayed in sitemap - which does not happens in web.
In order to have a consistent behaviour between web and sitemap only translated pages will be displayed in site map.xml.


Unique source of truth for the headless OpenAPI specification

A new mechanism has been added to Liferay to provide, in a single request, an OpenAPI specification file (in json or yaml format) containing all the available REST APIs, with the paths, methods and schemas involved. This request can be leveraged by integration platforms that are OpenAPI specification compatible as with a single URL, they will have all the information needed.

The URL to obtain the OpenAPI specification file is /o/openapi/openapi.{type} replacing {type} with one of the formats json or yaml.A request to this URL is quite process intensive, so expect waiting for the answer for several seconds as it needs to combine in runtime all the OpenAPI profiles of all the API applications deployed. We recommend using it for integrations or during development, not for real-time interactions with the users.

Management of Object Entries relationships through REST APIs

Objects have supported relationships through the UI for a long time, now, the same capabilities are accessible through the REST APIs. When you define one-to-many and many-to-many relationships between objects, Liferay generates endpoints for querying and managing entry relationships. This includes a GET endpoint for returning related object entries, PUT endpoints for relating entries, and a DELETE endpoint for disassociating related entries.

In addition to the dedicated relationship APIs, you can use the `nestedFields` query parameter with the object's other GET APIs to return an entry with its related entries. When using this parameter, you must provide the name of the relationship you want to include in the output (e.g., `nestedFields=subjectStudent`).
