How many ways are there to connect to Liferay from external/customized applications?

examples are available at

In brief, you could integrate Alfresco in the portal in following approaches.

· Web services, referring to the portlet Alfresco Content;

· RESTful services - OpenSearch, referring to the portlet Alfresco Content;

· RESTful services - web scripts, using alfresco as direct repository of Liferay, referring to chapter 6 Customizing the WYSIWYG Editor of the book Liferay Portal 5.2 Systems Development;

· CMIS – using CMIS document library hook;

· Portlets – using alfresco web client as a set of portlets. Refer to integrating-alfresco-web-client-as-a-set-of-portlets-with-liferay

Abstracted from the book: Liferay Portal 6 Enterprise Intranets
