Since last one year, i am working with liferay projects. I was looking for some good startup book on liferay. There are lots of companies are moving towards Liferay. And at developer stand, it is really good to learn liferay. According to me why i like liferay, as such some of the built in tool are stable and good. and allmost with all of the java library and other library like php, .net, there is integration possible. So as a developer you are limitless to provide integration support for your application.

In Book Liferay Beginners Guide, at the first look found that contents are well arranged, it contains little theory first and then example. So if person follows complete book.  He can learn liferay easily. I appreciate efforts by Cignex Datamatics Team. Good efforts.

Good content in Book

  •  For starting, learning and setting up liferay this book is the first choice.
  • Contains enough examples and exercises(Time for action contents)
  • In built portlet knowledge.
  • Contains initial setup and requirements related information.


  • No development information, how to develop portalet with liferay.
  • Integration support is not added.
  • Liferay 6.1 is on a way, and as such it is paper print, so no information within book. And for older release also no information.
  • I may expect advance version of the book.

I will add more summary and reviews for the book in between of reading and completing reading book.

  2. Sandeep says:

    Thanks Narendra for your valuable comments. The idea in creating this book was to have something who doesnt have programming experience to quickly build a portal using Liferay. It is more about how to use portal and learn the concepts of what Liferay provides which a site administer can leverage and quickly set up a site.

    some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience
    with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
