So whenever I set up a new Liferay cluster, I get to the end and I ask myself, "How do I know it is working?" My standard test is to connect to a node of the cluster and view a page. Then I connect to another node and change the content the first node is displaying. If I refresh the first node, I know it is working if that node shows the updated content instead of the old content....

Introduction So for the longest time I have been an advocate of Liferay's logging API. Folks have asked how to use Log4J or other frameworks and I've always advised against it. Why? Well, for 3 primary reasons: Liferay uses it. As with all things Liferay, it is always easier to go with flow than it is to fight your way upstream. It can be controlled by the...

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...

Introduction There are a lot of things that Liferay just won't say. They won't tell you what app server to use, won't tell you what framework to use, won't tell you how to deal with your production rollout or your production deployments, etc. There is really a lot of stuff that they won't say, but you don't really get the impression that there are things that aren't said by...

Frameworks. We all use them, some of them we love, some of them we hate, but we use them. There are popular ones like Spring and Hibernate, not so popular ones like Guice and iBatis. Popularity aside, we use frameworks because we [easily] leverage the functionality they bring to the table so we don't have to recreate the wheel. Heck, even Liferay has its framework stuff, not...

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...

Your Liferay workspace is full of modules. Each module is starting to make use of the same JS resources and functions. Wouldn't it be nice if you could refactor your JS into a separate module that you can import elsewhere without publishing it to NPM? Well, here is one solution you can try! Please note I'll be referring to the code in this repo throughout the blog post . 1) Create...

Introduction Out of the box, Liferay DXP has fairly limited audit message output targets. In fact, there are only two that are provided: logging them or persisting to the database. Each of these come with their own set of issues. Logging is tough because it is not searchable and hardly usable. Database persistence doesn't have these problems, but the administration and...

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...
