I am starting a short series of blogs in which I will show how to customise User Registration / Customer Acquisition process in Liferay. The inspiration for this blog is one of our DXP portal implementations which had very broad (and frequently changing) user data collection requirements. There are many scenarios in which you want to customise user registration and...

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 Problem The c3p0 connection pool exposes MBeans for JMX tools like jconsole to monitor its run-time states. However, both c3p0 and Liferay intentionally generate random MBean names on each startup. The random name of each data source makes it difficult to setup an independent monitoring tool. The second problem is, by default Liferay creates several data sources, one used by...

Genesis My colleague Vagif proposed a new way to develop a Liferay dynamic widget (the best name I can think of for now) with these pieces: Use the “Basic Web Content” structure or define a new structure. For each dynamic widget type, define a new display template. Create an OSGi service that returns a data model to be used by the display template. Create a web...

Introduction This is a simplified OSGi service API and implementation pattern. It follows the traditional Java interface-implementation pattern, in which the programmer is only required to keep the interface class and implementation class in sync. It does not use Liferay 7 service builder. The attached archive is a fully implemented ORM service based on MyBatis. Unzip it...

TL;DR - Add "-v 7.0" to your Blade command line to create modules for Liferay CE 7.0 and Liferay DXP 7.0. Hey, just a quick blog post here for something that developers may need to know...

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. Cultural, religious and regional concerns need to be considered. It may sound obvious, but the true fact is that we...

Intro In case you're not aware, Liferay uses Apache PDFBox to look at your PDFs. In order to index the content of a PDF, Liferay uses PDFBox to extract the content and uses that during indexing/searching. 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. Now that Liferay Portal 7.1 and Liferay DXP 7.1 are out, you might wonder if the feature is finally implemented, or how quickly it can be implemented, or what that feature actually is (or was): Let's...
