Subject Liferay as a Geronimo Plugin
Date Fri, 20 Jun 2008 10:30:54 GMT

With the help of David J custom server assemblies document ( ) and my 
experience working with David on the roller plugin I have manage to put 
together a Liferay ( ) plugin. For now the plugin 
is with liferay 5.0.1 rc1 on G 2.1.1 and consists of the following maven 

* geronimo-jetty-liferay -- A minimalistic server assembly with the 
geronimo kernel the lifray jetty plugin and the geronimo console plugin.
* liferay-jetty -- The liferay jetty plugin built on the lesslibs 
liferay-portal war pulling in dependencys like lifray -kernel, -service 
and -portlet.
* geronimo-tomcat-liferay -- A minimalistic server as above but with the 
liferay tomcat plugin.
* liferay-tomcat -- The liferay tomcat plugin as liferay-jetty above but 
with tomcat.
* liferay-derby -- The liferay derby db backend plugin.
* lifray-portal -- The liferay portal war fetched from liferay and 
pulled in to a local maven repos.
* liferay-portal-lesslibs -- A overlay of the liferay portal war with 
filtered lib jars making use of some geronimo builtins instead.

The geronimo-tomcat-liferay server seems to work fine but the jetty 
equivalent has a issue in the login page. When I have ironed out the 
jetty issue, cleaned up the code, made some additional improvements and 
put together a simple readme with build instructions ;) I am thinking of 
wrapping it up and first of all contribute it to the liferay community ( 
as suggested by david in ) to see if they 
are interested in it for there geronimo integration.

Anny suggestions, opinions, tips or help to pull this together in the 
best way possible are appreciated.
