Liferay IDE 1.0 Preview

Company Blogs April 30, 2010 By Gregory Amerson Staff

Hello everyone,

**Update: fixed video links, also you may want to check out the newest blogs related to the IDE, here and here **

Right now we are targeting the release of Liferay IDE 1.0 to be May 12.  Hopefully next week I can make more details available for community members to actually get your hands on the preview build and help test.  I know that several of you have offered and I will be taking you up on it, just not just yet.  Until then I do have some videos I'd like to share with everyone so you can see where things stand currently.  Below is an overview of some of the features that will be in 1.0.

1. Create new plug-in project

2. Portlet Project Deployment

3. New Portlet Wizard

4. New Hook Wizard

5. More Hook Wizard

6. Plug-in Package Editor

Be sure to check back next week and I hope to post  more details later on how to help with testing the preview builds before 1.0 is released.  Thanks for your patience!

 

Thanks, send me a note if you are interested in testing the preview builds.

Posted on 5/2/10 8:38 PM.
Thanks Greg,
It missed this kind of tools so that Liferay Portal can prevail to be as complete as other commercial solutions.

Posted on 5/3/10 8:42 AM.
Hi,

Can't see the videos. The message on the screencast.com page says "This content is currently unavailable. Please contact the content owner for more information." Are they available somewhere else?
Posted on 5/4/10 1:44 AM.
Sorry about that. I will try to get these videos moved to youtube soon so they will be made available again.

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by and posting your comments. I wanted to let you know that the plan is to try to release Liferay IDE 1.0 by this Friday. I will post another blog with more details when it is released.
Posted on 5/11/10 7:51 PM.
Been playing around around with the ide and really like it :-)

thank you, great work :-)

Posted on 5/12/10 6:47 AM.
Look nice emoticon
I am ready to test. More precisely, I cannot wait anymore to test this, because I've spent the past days trying to deploy my last hook ... still unsuccessfully ...
Posted on 5/12/10 7:52 AM.
Is this IDE is released for use?
Posted on 5/12/10 9:44 PM.
Not yet, The plan is by tomorrow it will be generally available.
Posted on 5/12/10 9:53 PM in reply to Dhrutika Parekh.
From where and when we can download this IDE?
Posted on 5/13/10 10:55 PM in reply to Gregory Amerson.
In a few hours hopefully and from a URL that will be published.
Posted on 5/13/10 11:18 PM in reply to Dhrutika Parekh.
Is the Liferay IDE released or did I miss any announcement.
Posted on 5/15/10 4:20 AM in reply to Gregory Amerson.
Sorry guys, the IDE hasn't been released yet. It didn't make it out on Friday should be available first thing next week. Sorry for the delay.
Posted on 5/15/10 9:07 PM in reply to Mohammed Khan.
Finally I think it is better to release it few days later but more stable with less bugs emoticon

Hi Greg, Great work.
How to use ext plugin through the IDE.
Posted on 5/17/10 12:30 AM.
What the new tentative date for IDE release
Posted on 5/17/10 6:08 AM in reply to Gregory Amerson.
For the first release, you can create new ext plugin projects through the IDE and deploy them to a liferay tomcat instance. That is about it for now. More features for ext plugins will be coming in the future though.
Posted on 5/17/10 6:12 AM in reply to Yogesh Agrawal.
I am going to try to get it released before the end of the week. All that is left is some rollout concerns and last minute testing.
Posted on 5/17/10 6:13 AM in reply to Abhishek Saxena.
Brother Amerson, could you please update us on the status of the Liferay IDE 1.0.Its almost the end of this week and we have been eagerly waiting for the IDE.
Posted on 5/19/10 11:25 PM in reply to Gregory Amerson.
Had some delays at the beginning of this week but I'm hopeful we can release by end of the week.
Posted on 5/20/10 3:03 AM in reply to Tanweer Ahmed Ansari.
Fabio,

The IDE will only support 6.0.x and going forward.
Posted on 5/20/10 3:23 AM.
Dear Gregory is IDE released? if not whats next release date
Posted on 5/22/10 1:57 AM in reply to Gregory Amerson.
It has not been released yet. Once the next release candidate (6.0RC2) is released, then we can roll out the IDE since it requires at least a version that work.
Posted on 5/22/10 3:34 AM in reply to Gundra Govi.
It would be great if the IDE could work with plugins using the maven build style:

Hi,

Nice work, i want to test it quickly but i've got a problem.

I download the Liferay IDE 1.0 with the eclipse update site http://gregamerson.com/liferay-ide/updates/latest/.

When i want to configure Liferay Runtime for Tomcat, an error occured (Portal version not supported. Need at least 6.0.2) because i use the version 6.0.1.

Where can i download the version 6.0.2 ?
Posted on 5/28/10 6:37 AM.
Hello Denis,

6.0 RC2 (6.0.2) is in the final stages of preparation before release. As soon as it is available for download, we will release the IDE. Thanks for your patience.
Posted on 5/28/10 6:55 AM in reply to Denis Briand.
I think, if someone wants to test and try without compiling liferay, it is possible to download a nightly build at http://releases.liferay.com/portal/nightly/
I think, the nightly should identify itself as 6.0.2 and behave like it.
Denis, thanks for the update URL :-)
Maybe I will try it if I will have some time.
Posted on 5/28/10 7:01 AM in reply to Gregory Amerson.
Another idea for the liferay team - eclipse update site for the liferay itself. The eclipse could then automatically try and find the appropriate updated liferay version for the existing IDE :-)

Well, then we should decide what to do with the existing liferay database...
Posted on 5/28/10 7:04 AM in reply to Andrius Kurtinaitis.
Thanks, it works !!!
Posted on 5/28/10 7:31 AM.
@DenisBriand and @AndriusKutinaitis Thanks for the work around, things are working fine at my side too. Great job for now. Thanks again.
Posted on 5/28/10 7:34 AM in reply to Denis Briand.
I tried installing using the Remote Site link you mentioned but now it throws up a Invalid License issue. Any work around ?
Posted on 5/28/10 7:56 PM in reply to Denis Briand.
Hello have you got news about the Liferay IDE release ?
Posted on 6/3/10 8:08 AM.
6.0 RC2 is still not released. As soon as it is (you will likely see a blog post) the IDE will be released shortly thereafter.
Posted on 6/3/10 8:30 AM in reply to Kevin Jebel.
It is an important tool for us ! Thans you for your work and your reactivity.
Posted on 6/3/10 8:40 AM in reply to Gregory Amerson.
Is there a tutorial about the IDE preview ?
Actually, I'd like to modify java files associated with the submit button of the account creation panel
Posted on 6/7/10 2:20 AM.
Liferay 6.0 RC2 is released. So now what is the tentative release date of IDE..
Posted on 6/8/10 11:37 PM in reply to Kevin Jebel.
Hello everyone,

We've just released version 1.0.0 of the IDE. You can read my new blog about it here:
http://www.liferay.com/web/gregory.amerson/blog/-/blogs/liferay-ide-1-0-0-r­eleased
Posted on 6/15/10 9:37 AM.
Thx for this good job. V1.0.0 is working only with Liferay 6.0 RC2 ?
Because i have some trouble to configure runtime environment for Liferay 5.2.3. Is it normal ?
Posted on 6/16/10 12:58 PM in reply to Gregory Amerson.
Correct, the IDE only works with 6.0 RC2 at the moment.
Posted on 6/16/10 1:21 PM in reply to Pierre H.
Ok thx for answer
Posted on 6/16/10 1:23 PM in reply to Gregory Amerson.
How can I create a theme with Liferay IDE? I've installed eclipse plugin and works fine with hook, ext and portlet but not create a theme
Posted on 6/21/10 1:36 AM in reply to Gregory Amerson.
Theme support has not been added yet. It is planned for the 1.1 release which should be out later this summer.
Posted on 6/21/10 6:04 AM in reply to Antonio Battista.

Looking forward to theme running emoticon
