Ezt elég nehéz magyarra fordítani, a két héttel ezelőtt az irodában zajló videóforgatás során is felmerült többekben a kérdés, hogy ez mit is jelent. Ha mindenképp megpróbálnánk lefordítani, talán  a “maradj kocka” kifejezés...

Through Liferay's JSON-WS interface it is possible to automate tasks that might otherwise take lots of time through Liferay portal's GUI interface.  For example for my work I often need to create a set of DDL record sets.

Back in October when we first introduced Launchpad Developer Preview, we put together a very simple documentation page for users. After seeing how people were interacting with the product we realized we needed a more robust structure.
