Liferay 7 development setup tutorial is to setup Liferay 7 development environment in local machine and access this tutorial to setup Liferay Eclipse IDE and tomcat in your local.

  • Liferay uses plugin sdk development environment and hold portlets,themes,layouts,ext,hooks and ANT Build scripts.
  • Liferay 7 uses OSGI platform that replaces traditional use of plugin-sdks with OSGI Modules, but still Liferay 7 supports Plugin SDK development.
  • Liferay 7 uses liferay-workspace to hold all modules,gradles, libraries,themes,wars,configs
  • portal-service.jar renamed to portal-kernel.jar, so liferay 6 code base need to be update with new API change in Liferay7 migration process.

Liferay 7 Development Setup:

Step1: Download Liferay and Java8

  • Click here to download Liferay7 tomcat community edition(liferay-ce-portal-tomcat-7.0-ga3) from sourceforge

  • Install Java8
  • MySQL version should be greater than 5.6
  • Extract the eclipse and it requires JDK8. update eclipse.inf file with -vm argument with JDK 8 bin path
    • Step2: Create Liferay Workspace

      Liferay workspace need to create to hold all modules and make sure that you configured proper proxy settings in eclipse if you are behind firewall. Go to windows-> preferences -> Network settings and select Manual. Update the with corp user name and password.

      In eclipse, click on File-> New -> Liferay Workspace Project and provide workspace name. It will download all required libraries from gradle repository.

      Step6: Liferay 7 Database configuration

  • Create database in mysql : create database lportal7_ce character set utf8;
  • Create file and add below database properties and liferay home.
  • Copy the mysql to tomcatlibext if not is not exist and start the server and you will get config page and complete the setup
