I have developed portlets for Liferay portal in my previous work. And I will be working again with Liferay in my upcoming project so i decided to create a tutorial on how to setup Liferay IDE and Liferay runtime environment and also create portlets using spring-portlets.

For those who don’t know what is Liferay, Liferay is an opensource enterprise portal that is used to power intranet and extranet. It is sometimes describe as CMS (content management system), but it is not just a CMS you can setup features in Liferay like Blogs, News and add portlets(there are already made portlets that you can include in your Liferay Portal or you can develop your own portlet.)

In creating our portlet we will be using Spring-portlet framework.

The introduction ends here. We will now setup our Liferay Portal. 🙂
