This is part 2 of an ongoing series of articles about my experiences with Liferay. In this article I will be providing step-by-step instructions on setting up an extensions environment with Liferay.
If you haven’t already set up a Liferay installation (with an application server), please refer to my previous blog post here.

I recently got the opportunity to work on a project involving Liferay, which is an open source Java based enterprise portal. I was new to Liferay at the start, and thought of sharing my experiences of working with Liferay. I’ve broken down my thoughts/experiences into a series of blog posts that will get published over the course of next month or two.
This is the first part of that series and details simple steps for getting started with Liferay and configuring it to work with MySQL back-end database.
