With the previous release of Liferay Portal 7.1, there was a significant change on the approach to author pages within Liferay Portal, developed under the “Modern Site Building” project. 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...

I know some of you have been disappointed by my last post about discontinuing the Liferay 7.2 Community Beta Program. I understand. It was also hard for us to let it go. But I do believe there is much better way to have an open discussion with you other than setting time constraints and strict rules. As you all know, Liferay Portal CE is an Open Source product developed in...

Overview As many of you know, we announced that we were going to start the 7.2 Community Beta Program with the release of 7.2 Alpha 1.  Since then we have come to the conclusion that bug reporting and providing feedback should be a continuous engagement and not be limited to a program with a short life span.  With the newly compressed release cycle we found that we were...

About two weeks ago, Jamie Sammons announced that Liferay 7.2 Community Beta Program is scheduled to start with the release of 7.2 Alpha 1, which is just around the corner. We know there are some people impatiently waiting for the program. In fact a question about it popped up on one of our Slack channels back in December. My response was “... you (and everyone else) are and will...

Liferay Faces Roadmap for Liferay Portal 7.2 Support (2019) For Liferay 7.2 support we have three major goals: 1. Support deployment of thin JSF WARs. Liferay Faces has always required that developers embed the JSF implementation (Mojarra), all Liferay Faces JARs, and (optionally) CDI inside their WAR’s WEB-INF/lib folder. However, in Liferay 7.2 CDI dependencies will be...

The university content team is busy, and you can find a new full course on Liferay University. Upgrading Liferay This course starts at Liferay 6.2 and upgrades it all the way to 7.1. We're using the Enterprise path, e.g. from 6.2 EE to DXP 7.1 as usual on University, but the steps apply to the Community path as well. I've had the privilege to teach this course after the...

The main purpose of this release is give you a sneak peak of what’s coming in 7.2 and to get an early start on testing our packaging process. It is by no means feature complete and hasn’t been tested for quality. The Liferay 7.2 Community Beta Program is scheduled to start with the release of 7.2 Alpha 1 in the coming weeks. Similar to 7.1, the 7.2 beta program will be divided into...

Background Last fall we reintroduced the option to use clustering in Liferay 7.0 by compiling a series of modules manually and including them in your project. We received a lot of feedback that this was a very cumbersome process and didn’t really provide the benefits we intended in bringing back clustering.   Enable Clustering Beginning with Liferay Portal 7.1 CE...

Update: This has been moved to January 11, 2019. Reason for the changes The vulnerabilities in TLS 1.0 (and SSL protocols) include POODLE and DROWN. Due to these security risks, Liferay decided to disable TLS 1.0, as many other companies have done. Moving to TLS 1.1 and higher will allow users to keep communications between Liferay and Liferay.com secure. What TLS...

As some of you may have already discovered, 7.1 GA2 was released as a 7zip bundle instead of the typical zip bundle. This probably caused a ton of issues. Even our own Dev Tools are not yet equipped to handle 7z files since all the events took up our time. I will provide you with the reasons why we had to make this move and hopefully, everyone will come to the conclusion that this...

Java 11 has just been released (on Sep, 25th) and it comes with the consolidation of a series of changes, not only to the language and the platform, but to the release and support model that has lead to some noise on the future of Java. Probably the two most notable concerns are the end of public updates for Java 8 and the uncertainty of the rights to use Oracle JDK without paying...

With the release of JDK11, Oracle's new Java SE Support Policy (and here) brings sweeping changes to the Java Enterprise community. If you would like a good explanation of the changes to come, I highly recommend this video. Here are my thoughts on how some of these changes will affect Liferay Portal/DXP users: Starting with JDK11, you will no longer be able to use Oracle...
