An obvious portal guide June 13 2009
By A. Madrid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is like the Jonas X. Yuan's Liferay Portal Enterprise Intranets. It describes obvious buttons, pages, etc. It doesn't enter in not so obvious topics like LDAP authentication, real, practical and effective permissions set, etc.
It has many beautiful images, but the content is not better than the free administrator guide from Liferay.
If you want to setup a real world portal server, i.e. with security, minimal customizations, etc, this is not the right book. With this you can configure a stainer like security protected server.

Huge dissapointment, Dont waste your time or money. Dec 11 2009
By John J. Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Is there a zero stars? This book is less useful than just taking the portal for a test drive. The install instructions say download the bundle. That is ridiculous. Get the freely available Admin guide from the portal site.

I think a book should have at least 1 line of java code in it to have a sub-title 'Java-based Portal Applications Development'. There is no development and this is definitely not a book that a 'pro' could use for anything other than holding down printouts of useful documentation from another source.

I do not even recommend this book to the newest of newbies. If you found your way to this review you already know half of the stuff in the book, like how to use self descriptive user interfaces.

I bought this book online and it took me less than a day of searching for anything java or development related to realize that this book has nothing even remotely resembling its title between the covers. Deceptive section titles make you think there is going to be some instruction on how to develop something to run in Liferay. This is a marketing scheme not a book.

Not for java developers Dec 1 2009
By Geert Timmermans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is merely an introduction to portals in general and liferay in particular.
Not intended for programmers who whish to integrate liferay with other systems or who whish to write their own portlets.
Useless garpage Oct. 30 2010
By Bloodboiler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Anyone could write this book with a stack of printed screen shots from out of date version from Liferay. To be fair, there are little pieces of useless xml fragments in the end, so it is possible the author does know about all the things mentioned it the title, but just didn't write about them.

Mary Shelley's 'Frankensein' contains far more practical information about portal application development while having about the same amount of information about Java portal technology and Liferay API.

I've found Apress books to be subpar at best but this one is so useless the publishing company should be shamed. I suggest you take a look at reviews before buying anything from this publisher.
