Liferay 6 and OpenSocial

Hi Jonas,

I'm curious about the OpenSocial support in Liferay 6 nd I have several questions. :-)

I've read already it's based on Apache Shindig but I'm not aware what version of OpenSocial is it.
Are there any OpenSocial features that are specific to Liferay?
Are you supporting OpenSocial groups already (which are part of OpenSocial 0.9 spec and beyond.
Is it possible to use any (OpenSocial) gadget merely by entering the gadget XML?

Last but not least, I believe that OpenSocial gadgets provide faster penetration of new functionality compared to portlets. Do you agree?

Cheers!

Hi Jonas,

Thank you for reply. However, you linked the very article I have linked above. :-)
Any chance of answering my questions above?

Thanks!

Hi Nenad,

Go there and download portlet WAR, where you can get all detailed info.

Good luck!

I was actually hoping for answers since. Theoretically I could explore the opensocial-portlet source but at this point I'm not sure it's worth the effort.

Thank you anyway.

Cheers!
