I found that they were set up to use Wily for monitoring their JVMs, and it was those classes that were generating CNFEs. In general, when you add the -Djavaagent=XXX parameter onto your app server's startup command, you're enabling an agent which will have...

Recently we got a couple of complains about new Web Content article behaviour, specifically about the JournalArticle.getContent() method’s return value. The main problem developers experience is when they embed an Image into the Web Content article or use ddm-image or ddm-document-library field in their structures they expect to see the URL of the object(Image or D&M asset) in the...

The world is big and diverse. Right now there are around 7.6 billion people in the world, 4 billion with an internet access. When you’re improving a Design System for a product used worldwide, like Lexicon for Liferay, you should take this simple statement into account.

However, Liferay tends to fall behind a bit on updating 3rd party libraries. When you favor stability, you tend to be rather conservative when considering updates like...

If you are working with Liferay for a while now, you might still remember a feature that went missing with version 6.1 - but there was a way to get it back. Also in 6.2 and 7.0.
