“The Liferay cookbook” is authored by Ahmed Hasan, Founder and CTO of TransIT mPower Labs Pvt. Ltd. This book is envisioned to serve as a detailed guide for Software Engineers to refer and acquire knowledge on advanced Liferay Portal Development Practices.

Liferay is a robust open source web portal technology based on Java, distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License and proprietary licenses. According to Gartner’s report, Liferay is the world’s leading open source enterprise portal solution using the latest in Java and Web 2.0 technologies.

This highly scalable and cost effective framework has broad web portal solutions and product capabilities. Hence, many large enterprises are adopting to Liferay in addition to Small and Medium Business (SMB’s). Acknowledged, as a recent and fast growing technology, this adoption has created a significant demand for resource expertise at all levels across the globe.

The fact remains that there are only a handful of Liferay Architects and Specialists in the world today. An obvious reflection of this fact is that in the last 7 years of its existence, only limited books have been published on this technology. Majority of which, gives only limited information. Thus, there exists a need for an end to end book that shares insights into the challenges in developing programs with Liferay. Hence, the “The Liferay Cookbook” addresses this need comprehensively.
