Maybe you didn't get the message but maven support in liferay is still very new (and untested, I believe).

You're going to suffer from some serious headaches banging your head up against the wall trying to use maven w/ SB.

Your best bet is to stick with ant...

If you are new to Liferay and maven you should stick with the ant based plugins sdk for now.

I guess there would be some document for it because we just need to build the project to generate the helper classes for DB. I tried building the project using maven but it asks for some dependencies to be resolved in the pom.xml. And surprisingly one of the dependencies is the jar file of the project itself. I tried inserting the jar manually as well but unfortunately it doesn't work and shows the same message. Can someone please help!!

Thanks & Regards

Maven SDK have not been made smart enough yet in respect of service builder. Hence i will suggest that to create and all the portlets or service builder is to use ant only.

You can use the Maven to build and deploy the whole portal i.e. to create the war.

Both Mika and myself said the same thing immediately after the initial posting, but you credit Ajeet for giving you the same answer? How's that work?

Probably some things have been updated, but I don't experience any problems using "mvn liferay:build-service". So IMHO it's smart enough now emoticon
It correctly creates all the classes for me, and I managed to get a service running.

What I did:
- use "mvn archetype:generate" and search for the correct archetype
- choose the correct version
- configure your service.xml
- go into your archetype project
- enter "mvn liferay:build-service"
- .... and see how all classes are generated for you

For deployment tips, see http://www.liferay.com/community/wiki/-/wiki/Main/Using+Class+Loader+Proxy+classes+to+share+plugins+services

Liferay has been doing work on the maven templates since this post went up earlier this year. I believe it's finally at a state that it can be used...

You don't need to worry about all the folders that are being created. Essentially you will only modify "xxxxxLocalServiceImpl.java" (where xxx is the name of your service) which contains your business logic and custom service methods.

Don't forget to rerun mvn liferay:build-service after you added/modified signatures in xxxxxLocalServiceImpl since these changes have to propagate to the xxxLocalService

Hello,

Have you tried modifying the column size?
portlet-model-hints.xml is now useless because Maven overwrites it at every service rebuild.

Thanks,
Alex
