So just a quick post here about your Liferay build chain... It is easy, when you're starting out, to follow the instructions to install the Blade CLI or the Maven artifacts. It is also easy, even after you've been developing for awhile, to "blade init" a new project or "mvn archetype:generate" a new project and write your next great software masterpiece. And while you may know...

Introduction So I'm not sure if you've had the chance to play around with the new Target Platform stuff that Liferay has, but it is really cool. If you haven't read about it or don't know what it is for, let me just summarize quickly: You declare a "dependency" on a Liferay-shipped BOM file, the "bill of materials" file for a project that lists all of the dependencies and...

Liferay has a complete built-in scheduled job service which manages jobs that run on every node as well as single jobs that run in a cluster. Unfortunately there hasn't been a way to gain visibility on those scheduled jobs to see what they are, when they were scheduled, when they have run before and when they will run again. Until today. Now available is the Scheduled Tasks...

The price for TripWire CE and TripWire DXP have been significantly reduced by 90%! TripWire is a control panel that compares each node in a cluster against a baseline. Any time there is a configuration or other change, the administrator will be notified that the cluster is in an inconsistent state and provide details about the inconsistency. This tool can help ensure each node...

So whenever I set up a new Liferay cluster, I get to the end and I ask myself, "How do I know it is working?" My standard test is to connect to a node of the cluster and view a page. Then I connect to another node and change the content the first node is displaying. If I refresh the first node, I know it is working if that node shows the updated content instead of the old content....

Introduction So for the longest time I have been an advocate of Liferay's logging API. Folks have asked how to use Log4J or other frameworks and I've always advised against it. Why? Well, for 3 primary reasons: Liferay uses it. As with all things Liferay, it is always easier to go with flow than it is to fight your way upstream. It can be controlled by the...

Back in April of 2018 I posted a blog titled Liferay Faces downloads at an all time high in which I mentioned that Liferay Faces artifacts had surpassed 11,000 downloads/month. I'm pleased to report that downloads for Liferay Faces have reached another all time high, reaching almost 18,000 downloads/month (see attached graph from Maven Central). Also as I mentioned in...

The ultimate goal of this vision is to empower non-technical users to create stunning websites. To achieve that goal, we envisioned the role of the marketer and business users as specific personas...

Introduction There are a lot of things that Liferay just won't say. They won't tell you what app server to use, won't tell you what framework to use, won't tell you how to deal with your production rollout or your production deployments, etc. There is really a lot of stuff that they won't say, but you don't really get the impression that there are things that aren't said by...

Frameworks. We all use them, some of them we love, some of them we hate, but we use them. There are popular ones like Spring and Hibernate, not so popular ones like Guice and iBatis. Popularity aside, we use frameworks because we [easily] leverage the functionality they bring to the table so we don't have to recreate the wheel. Heck, even Liferay has its framework stuff, not...
