I should configure the mail for Liferay in webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes/portal-ext.properties

From a tutorial I copied the following properties:


I get this error:

10:51:15,929 ERROR [MailSessionFactoryBean:67] Unable to lookup mail/MailSession
javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: Name mail is not bound in this Context

Since I am a java greenhorn... where can I find some info about configuring those parameters. I am using Tomcat.

I have Liferay running on Solaris. I had not the time to learn Liferay but I will start soon. There is a very poor documentation for Solaris installation and I think it is better to run Liferay alone without any other web application in the same server.

I think that is implicit that if you deploy on the JVM you need to use JRuby not Ruby.

I will use Tomcat 6. I am not sure if I will develop with Ruby or JRuby, and at the time of the deployment I could switch from a Ruby project to a JRuby one only by copying the files.

Thanks for your help guys. I will learn Liferay, is more Intranet ready and already has many features that I need.

Hi guys,

I should develop and intranet with Java. I am a PHP developer with decent background in Java (university) but not commercial experience. I am developing a custom intranet in PHP but I should start to provide some demo of an intranet made in Java to anohter company. I have very few time to dedicate to the Java intranet, so I need something simple.

I have found that Alfresco and Liferay are two really Open Source option. I know that Alfresco is an ECM and Lifreray is a portal system, but I am quite confused. I seems to me that Liferay is quite complete as an intranet, Alfresco seems more feature rich but it should be customized a lot.

I know that Alfresco an Liferay can be integrated but as I said I need a simple solution. The requirements for the intranet are:

1. Create sections and publish articles there (news, head office, vacancies, help, internal news, etc).
2. possibility to set up access control per section and/or per file.
3. Poll.
4. Display the share price of the company stock price.
5. Display in a div three clocks with the US, France and UK time.
6. a list of aout ten mail links to internal and external web sites.
7. Set up a go-live and expiring time for the articles.

I do not need complex features, just to display some articles. So:

1. What is the difference between ECM and portlet?
2. Is it better Alfresco or Liferay for the over mentioned requirements?

Thanks in advance, regards,
