Dear All ,
This is Muthukumar from Bangalore India. I am new to Liferay development . And i am working on Struts Base Liferay Portal Development using tomcat server.


I have some doubt in " ant deploy " . When i change any Action class after that again doing the ant deploy . there are huge files are moving to portal-ext to tomcat . then i am restarting my tomcat server .

when am run ant i get this message .
==============================================================
deploy:

deploy-war:
[copy] Copying 4192 files to D:\project\tomcat-5.5.25\webapps\ROOT

==============================================================



My Question is Why am deploying all the files and update into server . I'm changing one Action File only . Is there any solution for my problem ?



I dont know how to deploy single file into server .? Please tell me any option is there ?


Thanks and Regards
Muthukumar .T

Which directory are you issuing the ant command from?

I downloaded the liferay plugins SDK and that has some build files with it that only build and deploy the one portlet I am working on. I can't recommend it enough.
The documentation was a little confusing but now I have it working. Please ask if you have any questions.

Hi Muthukumar,

It looks like you're deploying the ext environment. As Tim mentioned, you should be creating new portlets in the Plugins SDK. The ext environment is only used to modify core portal behavior.

The Liferay Community Wiki is a great resource to get started. The wiki is community driven so as you're getting familiar with Liferay feel free to enhance any of the articles you find. On the Liferay.com site you'll also find the Message Boards and additional Documentation

You may also want to consider attending a Liferay training. There are three different courses available depending on your area of focus and training is offered around the world. In fact, I was in Bangalore last month teaching the Liferay Developer course. For additional information on training, check out: http://www.liferay.com/services/training/

I would also recommend that you take a look at Liferay in Action by Rich Sezov. The book has not been published yet, but it is currently available through the Manning Early Access Program (MEAP) and you can download the first chapter for free to get a feel for it. Check out Rich's Blog to keep up to day on publishing details.
