About the Author:

Samir Bhatt is an Enterprise Architect with over 12 years of IT experience. He is a Liferay certified trainer and delivers public and private training across the world.

Liferay Portal allows users to set up features common to websites. It is fundamentally constructed of functional units called portlets. Liferay's support for plugins extends to multiple programming languages, including support for PHP and Ruby portlets. Although Liferay offers a sophisticated programming interface for developers, no programming skills are required for basic website installation and administration.

Liferay Portal Performance Best Practices will guide readers on defining the architecture of Liferay based solutions in order to meet performance expectations. This book will provide vital information to developers on implementing software load balancer using the Apache Web server, configuring the Liferay portal cClust, and Cache Replication using different options.

Using real-world examples and samples, this book provides an in-depth knowledge of performance best practices in increments, starting with architectural options, before moving on to more complex topics such as development practices, and concluding with techniques related to load testing and a performance tuning exercise.

This book consists of the following essential chapters:

Chapter 1: Architectural Best Practices

Chapter 2: Load Balancing and Clustering Best Practices

Chapter 3: Configuration Best Practices

Chapter 4: Caching Best Practices

Chapter 5: Development Best Practices

Chapter 6: Load Testing and Performance Tuning
