Introduction One of the great advantages I have being known in the community is really the opportunity to meet, talk and work with talented developers and teams. Recently the team at ACSoftware announced in the Liferay Community Slack they were working on a new Liferay development tool, and I was fortunate enough to work with them on evaluation and testing. As it is just released, I...

Introduction So recently a couple of times I've seen folks ask how to send form data somewhere. Some want to trigger remote web service calls, some want to store the data in a different entity or database, etc. The common answer I give is to use a Tee storage type to persist in Liferay while using as you need, and this is sometimes followed by "um, what was that?" ;-) So I figured it was...

Introduction Let me start by saying that I'm a huge fan of Upgrade Processes. I've actually written many blogs about Upgrade Processes or using Upgrade Processes: https://liferay.dev/blogs/-/blogs/old-versus-new https://liferay.dev/blogs/-/blogs/thinking-outside-of-the-box-resources-importer https://liferay.dev/blogs/-/blogs/servicebuilder-and-upgrade-processes ...

Introduction As of yet, there has been no official word that JDK 11 is supported by the Liferay developer tools. Just like the old delays going from JDK 7 to JDK 8, various third party tools and libraries held up the switch to JDK 11. Up until now, some developers had luck using JDK 11, but there were lingering issues with some tools such as Service Builder which could get in the way. In...

What is the Mega-Jar? So the Liferay Dev Tools team recently included a new feature that they refer to as a "fat" jar, but I'm giving it the name Mega-Jar! This is a new single dependency that you can use in your Maven pom.xmls and Gradle build.gradle files, replacing all of the atomic dependencies with a single "one Mega-Jar to rule them all" dependency. So basically your...

About a year ago, Liferay introduced a new program that I have been actively participating in, Liferay Developer Services. But what is this program? Liferay Support When you are a Liferay DXP customer, you automatically get access to Liferay Support as part of the Subscription Services. Support is staffed by a great bunch of people that want to help clients resolve product-level issues....

This time, things are a little bit different to last year (in case you haven’t noticed ). Our Developer Conference has been a great platform throughout the past 7 years to strengthen the Liferay community by enabling you to connect, exchange and have fun together. Our mission remains the same for 2021, just executed in a slightly different format. And the good thing is, for the...

One thing that I commonly see Liferay admins doing is changing the user.timezone JVM parameter to their local timezone. I mean, I get why this might seem like a good idea. I only serve users around me who are in the same timezone. I don't like the logs showing the GMT time instead of the local time. I want everything to reflect my particular timezone. When I query the database, it...

On and around 24 September (depending on your exact timezone), we'll host the very first /dev/24 livestream. Technical information for 24 hours - sleep ahead, and schedule some recovery time afterwards. We're starting 24 Sep 7:00 UTC and carry on for full 24h. The draft agenda is now published. It still needs some polishing, and there are some empty slots in the very early...

Malcolm Gladwell is often misquoted as saying, and I'm paraphrasing here, you need 10,000 hours in a subject to become an expert. It's a phrase many of us have heard, whether attributed to Gladwell or not. Actually what he did imply in his book Outliers: The Story of Success is that you need 10,000 hours in a subject to become a phenom, the expert's expert, the grandmaster in chess or...

Maybe you are (or have been at some point) afraid of sharing with the community, submitting a proposal to a Conference, or a User Group meetup because you think that you don’t have anything interesting, that your experiences or findings are not worth it, they are not a big deal. If you are one of those, or you know someone suffering from those symptoms, stay with me through this...
