"Project" vs "Product"

A Project is a free open source solution, app, SDK, or any other asset created with the help and contributions of our community. They showcase open source development and innovation at its best and will have the latest and greatest features. Help for Projects can be found in our Community wikis, blogs, free documentation, and forums.

A Liferay Product is the enterprise edition of Projects that have been further refined and fine-tuned for enterprise deployment and production. Enterprise support, consulting, and training services are all offered for our Products.

It wraps Liferay JSON web services, takes care of authentication, makes HTTP requests (synchronously or asynchronously), parses JSON results and handles server side exceptions.
