I wanted to share some testing that I have been doing in terms of patching OSGi modules and adding the patched modules to your own Liferay installations.  One of the many benefits to modularity is that it allows for these kinds of changes to be made without having to recompile the whole platform from scratch.

Last month, I attended BizBash LA for the second time (you can see my 2015 recap here). I had a great time hearing from industry leaders and meeting fellow event professionals.
