To help you work successfully and efficiently with Liferay Portal as quickly as possible, Componence offers a two-day Dutch Liferay course. Our experienced trainers offer individual guidance at every level, and the course material is easy to follow and contains many exercises that put the theory directly into practice.

Day 1

The course starts with a concise introduction to Liferay Portal and its wide range of possibilities. You will be introduced to the concept of users, user groups, organizations, sites, and teams and the Liferay Portal user interface will be explained. After this, you will install Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition and learn to configure its most important portal settings.

Next, you will configure the portal's organizational structure, finding out how to add sites, organizations, users, user groups, teams and roles, and you will learn about role scopes and the differences between portal roles, site roles, and teams.

We then focus on the creation and maintenance of pages in the Liferay CMS. You will learn how to create and publish new content while discovering the extensive possibilities of the Document and Media portlet, including storing content which can be made available to users. You will explore methods of configuring the Document and Media portlet for the conversion of various file formats, as well as how to make use of the permissions system.

Day 2

On the second day of the course, you will be introduced to the advanced capabilities of the Liferay CMS. You will learn how to use tags and categories to increase the visibility and findability of your content, and functionalities such as comments and ratings will be explained.

Next, we will focus on how to integrate existing websites and applications with Liferay's IFrame and Web Proxy portlets, and the possibilities of the RSS portlet will be explored. We will also address the installation of the Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) plug-in, and the installation of a WSRP producer and consumer.

Liferay Portal offers many possibilities for knowledge exchange and collaborative content editing such as the forum and the powerful wiki-portlet, which you will explore in depth. We will then introduce you to the Social Suite, which enables you to create social networks in your organization, allowing you to track and reward the activities of site members.

Other features during this last course day are portal design and creating a Liferay Workflow for uploading and approving content. You will also hear about Dynamic Data Lists and the benefit of adding extra fields. Finally, we will review several Enterprise Edition plug-ins, including the Audit plug-in and Audit hook, the Drools plug-in, and the Knowledge Base plug-in.

Practical Information

Componence will give the Dutch Liferay course at your location. We will share our expertise with groups up to a maximum of eight people in order for every participant to get the most out of the course. At the end of the course, participants receive a certificate which will shortly give access to an online knowledge and information sharing community.
