Liferay Portal Server is a quite good product, I have implemented LR based solutions for several customers now.. It is easy to get into it since you just download a zip file, unpack it and start the server. LR has lots of features, but of course, it can't compete with dedicated products. Wordpress has more blogging features, mediawiki is the far superior wiki, SMF the more powerful forum, ... But: These are all standalone products specialized in being a Blogging platform/Wiki/Forum. The biggest benefit: It's open source. When you use a product, you find things that don't work or work in an unexpected way. But since LR is open source, you can look into the product and find out, how it is done. Themes are very powerful, one can totally change the look of the portal. Using "hooks" alot of the default behavior can be changed. ServiceBuilder allows to add own data to Liferay in a consistent way. With "Application Display Templates" views on items can be scripted without deployment (e.g Image Gallery, flat list, images, carousel, ...) The biggest caveat is documentation. It's getting better, but it is still difficult to find info on lots of things.

Not standard conform (portlets only run in liferay) logic implemented in javascript (aka in the model) source code poorly (at all?) commented bad documentation some releases don't run at all (the jboss 5 bundled packages don't start) Do not use this!

Liferay has many good ideas but none of them are thought through and the product is full of bugs and half-finished features. It is OK for very basic small websites, but web content staging breaks as soon as the setup is just a bit more complex. Upgrades are a nightmare and I would not recommend to use it with any other database then MySQL as apparently it is not being tested with more feature rich DBMS like Postgres or Oracle (that typically are much more strict with data type checking). Portlet deployment is a nightmare for the developers: the turn-around times are horrible and the server startup takes 3-4 minutes even on fast hardware. If you need a CMS look some where else.

Liferay modularized every last bit of it's code to OSGI packages in form 7 which is accessible as advanced experience stage or DXP for generation frameworks. OSGI based approach paves the way for development and upgrades. The most conspicuous being brought together segment based approach for improvement. The package approach gives more space for change administration as the groups are less demanding to supplant and update without influencing different groups. This is pertinent to all code from Liferay's own particular center code to exclusively created groups. I would have given 3.5 rating for first arrival of Liferay 7 however I will give 5 now as I trust the inadequacies and elements will balance out in a limited ability to focus. As Liferay experienced an extraordinary change in adaptation 7 which is extremely encouraging, it is simply an issue of time that the entrance will best the outlines. www.newgersy.com

Liferay modularized almost all of it's code to OSGI bundles in version 7 which is available as digital experience platform or DXP for production systems. OSGI based approach opens up all the gates for improvement and enhancements. The most prominent being unified component based approach for development. The bundle approach gives more room for change management as the bundles are easier to replace and upgrade without affecting other bundles. This is applicable to all code from Liferay's own core code to custom developed bundles. I would have given 3.5 rating for first release of Liferay 7 but I will give 5 now as I believe the shortcomings and features will stabilize in a short span. As Liferay underwent a phenomenal change in version 7 which is very promising, it is just a matter of time that the portal will top the charts.

As many other products it comes as it is. You cannot force it to make it what it is not. this is an excellent tool, very complex with capabilities well above the needs of the average project. I have been working for more than 8 years with Liferay building portals from the simplest one to the more complex project existing on the net at the moment; in all the cases it has deliver well, it has been the only possible choice to build the product in the time each project was done. My 2 cents of advice: do not start coding eagerly because you know very well java web development, before you implement the "hello world" try to know the product, have its code source very close and see how Liferay does it (because Liferay have done it before you for most of the cases).
