Liferay Previews Marketplace for Application Developers

Liferay Portal Enables Improved Enterprise Social App Development

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Liferay, provider of the world's leading enterprise-class open source portal, today previewed Liferay Marketplace at its annual East Coast Symposium. The highly anticipated Marketplace will be the premier destination for solutions built on the Liferay Platform, enabling Liferay customers, partners, ISVs, and the wider community to easily publish, share, and monetize these applications.

The Liferay Portal platform boasts a global community of 45,000 fans and users as well as over 4 million lifetime downloads of its freely available open source version. In its 11 years of development, the platform has become a leading choice for enterprises seeking capabilities for portal, content management, collaboration, workflow, social networking, and a compelling user experience framework.

"Liferay will be launching its marketplace to facilitate the development and sale of third party Liferay applications and to make it easy for end users to find, purchase, download, and install these applications," said Paul Hinz, Chief Marketing Officer at Liferay. "In addition to the development of more traditional applications, Liferay also enables the development of social applications that can leverage a user's social identity, friend network, communities, or community role."

At the Liferay East Coast Symposium, Liferay community manager James Falkner will:

  • Preview Liferay Marketplace to an audience of both technical and business users and partners
  • Describe how the Marketplace works
  • Explain how developers can develop for and publish to the Marketplace
  • Provide overview of Marketplace Business and Technical guides
