Friday, June 12, 2009 | News | Java

Liferay Portal 5.2 Systems Development is a new book for Java developers that teaches them to create their own applications using the Liferay tools. Written by Jonas X. Yuan, this book helps readers to customize the Liferay portal using the JSR-286 portlet, extension environment, and Struts framework.

The Liferay portal is one of the most mature portal frameworks on the market, offering many key business benefits that involve personalization, customization, and workflow. If you are a Java developer who wants to build custom intranet systems, based on the Liferay portal platform, this book provides all the intuitive and collaborative end-user experience required.

The reader will learn to work with the JSR-286 portlets and Extension environment, thereby building larger applications and reusing portlets in different scenarios. They will also learn to build Struts portlets with permissions and a set of actions. By using CMS and WCM users can aggregate and manage all content in one central place. They will learn to share web sites, pages, and portlets with friends, and will also set-up control panel and inter-portlet communication.

Users will learn to customize WYSIWYG editor FCKEditor to make images, links, videos, games, video, and play lists as part of web content. In order to customize the overall look and feel of web sites and pages, the reader will learn to develop layout templates and themes in the Plugins SDK environment. Using workflow capability, developers can schedule, publish, and manage web content. With the help of OpenSearch, Spring services, and web services, they can build dynamic web sites smoothly.

Java developers interested in using the Liferay portal as a framework will find this book useful. This book is out now and is available from Packt. For more information, please visit http://www.packtpub.com/liferay-portal-5-2-systems-development/book
