  18. 18. Closing    Survey  Feedback    “Got  to  know  lots  of  Liferay  Facts.Was  surprised  to  see  that  Liferay  even  has  its  University”    “We  use  the  community  edition  because  the  policy  of  our  enterprise  is  to  use  open  source  software  (that  option  wasnt  among  the  answers).”    “I  dont  see  any  reason  to  use  EE,  but  that  was  not  an  option.”    "Hello,  I  really  like  this  initiative  taken  by  Liferay.  Its  really  very  good  to  know  that  Liferay  took  things  to  individual  member  level  and  provided  them  a  chance  to  share  their  experience  with  Liferay."    “I  was  expecting  another  type  of  survey.  Something  more  related  to  the  problems  we  encounter  when  developing.  For  instance  interporlet  comunication,  speed  in  development.”    "Hi,  it  is  a  great  idea  to  do  this,  I  will  participate  even  next  time."    “This  survery,  its  a  great  idea.  Manage  a  so  huge  community  its  not  so  simple.  IMHU  James  Falkner  contribution  has  been  a  good  decision  for  a  product  like  Liferay.”      “I  hope  this  survey  will  help  to  improve  the  Liferay  Portal  quality”    “More  open  questions  would  be  interesting.  This  is  only  superficial  information  not  in  depth.”    Other  areas  to  focus  on    “Got  to  know  lots  of  Liferay  Facts.  Was  surprised  to  see  that  Liferay  even  has  its  University”    modularity    An  upgrade  process  that  works  without  trashing  my  data  in  Oracle.    Dont  delay  the  release.    Integration  with  Maven      "Usability  &  Consistency  -­‐  Its  getting  better  and  better,  but....    It  is  difficult  to  design  new  intranet  for  our  customer  -­‐  in  every  project  we  have  to  fix  lot  of  bugs  or  change  lot  of  behaviors...    Some  examples:    1)  WebContent  can  work  with  Scope  (Global/Site/PAGE)  but  TAGs  and  Categories  only  with  Site/Global  scope.  So  ""page  scope""  is  unusable!    2)  We  made  WebContent  structures  (advertisement,  ...).  We  have  to  permit  all  users  publish  any  web  content  -­‐  portal  dont  allow  permit  only  one  structure.  So,  structures  are  useful  olny  for  editors....  
  19. 19.  3)  AssetPublisher  is  very  powerful  portlet.  Its  too  complex  and  it  cant  do  lot  of  things...  Lets  make  more  similar  portlets  for  more  use  cases.    Our  typical  requirement  is:  ""Asset  publisher  will  aggregate  all  contents  from  all  portal  sites.  When  I  click  on  title  I  will  be  redirected  on  page  with  this  article"".    4)  I  have  2  Wikis,  2  pages  (for  every  wiki).  I  have  WebContent  with  related  assets  (wiki1_page1,  wiki2_page1)  -­‐  all  wiki  pages  are  shown  in  wiki1  (ignoring  allowed  wiki  in  configuration)    There  are  lot  of  work  done,  I  know.  But  work  on  details  ;)    Needs  more  quality  in  features,  More  stability  required.      "I  would  prefer  Liferay  making  its  Core  lighter  ...  There  are  too  many  portlets  that  are  not  being  used  by  us,  but  still  all  these  portlets  remain  unused.    If  the  Core  is  light,  then  the  number  of  DB  tables  will  be  less  and  more  over  all  the  Core  Portlets  if  provided  as  separate  portlets  just  like  the  Knowledge  Base  portlet  ...  It  would  be  better.  So  that  We  could  choose  on  what  we  want  to  use,  rather  than  dumping  everything  and  not  using  them.    I  do  not  know  the  ramifications  of  making  the  core  lighter,  but  Liferay  needs  to  think  about  it."    More  OOTB  portlets  with  integration  with  various  frameworks  and  technologies  like  spring,solar,  scheduler,jasper  reports,SAP,SSO  etc.    "Stability  was  VERY  poor  with  6.1  EE  SP1  -­‐-­‐  Henry  N.,  Matt,  and  the  rest  of  the  VERY  talented  Support  Team  heroically  saved  the  day  and  a  potentially  HUGE  (reference)  customer  in  HigherEd.    Please  focus  on  QA  going-­‐forward.
