So what is Liferay? As you can see, it’s hard to describe, because it does so much. What we’ve essentially done is say it’s a totally awesome content and document managing, user collaborating, socially enabling, application developing, corporate integrating, completely customizable platform for building the Internet. If we’d said that up front, you’d probably have doubted us. Hopefully now, you can see that it’s true.
If you’re interested in using Liferay Portal for your product, continue reading. We’ll go through all of these features (and more that we couldn’t mention) throughout the rest of the book.
