I recently took an online course to learn more about TypeScript, a superset of JavaScript that provides optional static typing, classes, interfaces, and much more. Whenever I'm in the process of  learning a new language/framework/etc. I find it helpful to experiment in a setting I'm already familiar with, where I can  add that new thing a little at a time. Since I work with...

Introduction I have never liked one aspect of Liferay logging - it is not persistent. For example, I can't debug a startup issue unless I get the portal-log4j-ext.xml file set up and out there. Not so much of a big deal as a developer, but as a portal admin if I use the control panel to change logging levels, I don't expect them to be lost just because the node restarts. ...
