I've been writing portlets for the last 8 months or so and I feel like I'm just starting to get the hang of both Liferay and writing Spring portlets.
Are you using liferay 5.2.3 in this book?
Do you cover jQuery best practices for portlet development, such as namespacing your javascript?
Do you talk about portlet development using Spring mvc or just struts / jsp?

Hi Jason,

1. Portlets in Action covers developing portlets using Spring Portlet MVC (a framework meant exclusively for developing portlets) for developing JSR 286 portlets. The chapter on Portlet Bridges covers developing JSF 2 and Wicket portlets.
2. The book covers Liferay 6.0.5 as it is the latest version of Liferay portal.
3. Portlet namespaces is covered in detail with examples. You can download examples from the following location: http://code.google.com/p/portletsinaction/

regards
ashish

And to clarify, in the book do you advocate writing your portlets as individual war files (i think liferay 6 calls them plugins)? I've been trying to find examples of portlets that weren't written in the extension environment, although from what I read recently liferay 6 has changed the extension environment used in 5.x into something new.

Hi Jason,

I don't advocate using plugin portlets or to use Liferay EXT environment or Hooks. The Portlets in Action book doesn't cover EXT environment and Hooks. I think depending upon your requirements you may end up using portal server specific approach to do a few things in your portal.

All the examples in Portlets in Action book are of plugin portlets. You'll find them here: http://code.google.com/p/portletsinaction/

The complete code of Portlets in Action consists of around 25 eclipse projects which you can build using ANT or Maven, as described in Chapter 1 of the book. You can download chapter 1 from here: http://manning.com/sarin/.
