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-ga77

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


Experience Management

Page Builder support for displaying Object Relationships

​​​​​​​Now, when creating pages and display pages to visualize object entries, users can easily display related object entries. To enable this, we have added:

  • In a one-to-many or many-to-many object relationships scenario, new

Related Item collection providers to access information of the “many” side of a one-to-many and many-to-many relationships. Example: A Countries object, and a related “cities” object for cities in those countries. This new capability allows to easily list the cities that belong to a country, and other data from each city, via a related item collection provider.

  • In a one-to-many object relationship, if we are listing or displaying the items of the “many” side, information of the “one” side is available for direct mapping as well. Example: a “Countries” object, and a related object for cities in those countries. When

listing the cities, this new capability allows to easily display the country each city belongs to.

  • Attachment field attributes (such as download URL, of file size) are now available for direct mapping.

(please see related Confluence Page for additional info and demo video).
