I need to create announcements in LifeRay with data from an existing data base (or display the data in any other way). I would want to know how do I write code to do this.

Your help will be greatly appreciated,

Alejandro Barrero

So, you want a portlet that runs and displays certain pieces of data from time to time?

Where is the data or announcement coming from?

Are you just trying to write a portlet that reads from a queue? Or reads from a database table?

Thank you for your reply. I need to display data and images that already exit in a database. It is too much data to to create announcements or other items by hand. I think the solution is to write code that would create the LifeRay items; I don't want to dig in the source code and think that perhaps I could use the API.

AnnouncementsEntryLocalServiceImpl.java
AnnouncementsDeliveryLocalServiceImpl.java
AnnouncementsFlagLocalServiceImpl.java

are three IMPL classed which deal with announcements.

AnnouncementsEntryLocalServiceImpl.java is responsible for DB Operations.

These are impl classes . to access the method you need to call it on util classes .

Example : AnnouncementsEntryLocalServiceUtil.addEntry()

Thanks

Thank you very much Arvid, but what do I have to do to have acces to the classes? What documentation is there, other than JavaDocs for the API?
