The Liferay in Action MEAP was updated today and now includes all the chapters that will be a part of the book. I still have some editing to do, but we're getting pretty close now. From the Manning announcement:
Chapter 1, "Liferay is a different portal," has been revised.
Chapter 2, "Appray: Development at light speed," has been revised.
Chapter 3, "A data-driven portlet made easy," has been revised.
Chapter 4, "MVC the Liferay way," has been revised.
Chapter 5, "Providing your own site design with themes and layout templates," has been revised.
Chapter 9, "Liferay architecture and extension points," has been revised.
Chapter 10, "A tour of Liferay APIs," has been added.
The new chapter 10 provides a tour of Liferay APIs that you'll want to use in your applications. You can give your applications friendly URLs, organize larger applications with ActionCommands, use the message bus, schedule jobs, index your data, and more. Chapters 1-5 and 9 have been updated in response to reader and reviewer feedback.
Next, the book will be moving into production, where it will get a copy edit and will be typeset for printing.
I have to get the manuscript for its final technical review. Once that's done, there will be another batch of revised chapters in the next update. So you can still subscribe to the MEAP, and now is a great time to do it, since the book now has all its chapters. You can get a 35% discount on it by clicking here or on any of the banners for it that you see on liferay.com.
To anyone who's been reading, thank you for your valuable comments and feedback. We're on the home stretch now!
