Upgrading Liferay

New hands-on course on Liferay University and University/Passport

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 Northamerican Symposium 2018 in New Orleans, and finally it's been recorded and the recordings are edited and published.

Learn what you'll need to do in order to upgrade your 6.2 installation: Prepare, upgrade the database, your code, and everything around it. And yes, the course comes with a sample installation that you actually can lay your hands on.

You'll find this course on Liferay University, and of if you're a passport customer, your investment just got more valuable: Of course it's added to your curriculum on Passport.

Topics in this course include:

  • Upgrade Tooling
  • Database Upgrades
  • Code Upgrades: to OSGi or not to OSGi?
  • What to do with Ext plugins
  • Infrastructure Upgrade (e.g. Search)
  • and more

The instructor on this course is Eddie Chow, who is looking forward to see you sign up for the course.


Learn as much as you can

The offer that you can't refuse: Liferay University Passport, our flat rate for each and every course on Liferay University, was available for an introductory price at almost 30% discount that should have been over by now. It includes personal access to all material on university for a full year - learn as much as you can. The offer was scheduled to expire at the end of the year - but while I'm writing this, it's still available - so sign up quickly, or regret.

Prefer a live trainer in the room?

Of course, if you prefer to have a live trainer in the room: The regular trainings are still available, and are updated to  contain all of the courses that you find on Liferay University and Passport. And, this way (with a trainer, on- or offline) you can book courses for all of the previous versions of Liferay as well.

And, of course, the fine documentation is always available and continuously updated.
