This book is a practical guide with a very user-friendly approach. The author has taken a virtual enterprise as an example and has used the features of Liferay to build a corporate intranet for that enterprise. This book is for system administrators or experienced users (not necessarily programmers) who want to install and use Liferay in their teams or businesses without dealing with complex code. Prior knowledge of Liferay is not expected for this book.
Dr. Yuan is an expert on Liferay Portal and Content Management Systems (CMS). As an open source community contributor, he had published three Liferay books from 2008 to 2010. He is also an expert on Liferay integration with Ad Server OpenX, different search engines, enterprise content types including videos, audios, images, documents, and web contents, and other technologies such as BPM Intalio and Business Intelligence Pentaho, LDAP, and SSO. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Zurich, where he focused on Integrity Control in Federated Database Systems. He earned his M.S. and B.S. degrees from China, where he conducted research on expert systems for predicting landslides. Previously, he worked as a Project Manager and a Technical Architect in Web GIS (Geographic Information System). He is experienced in SystemsDevelopment Lifecycle (SDLC) and has deep, hands-on, skills in J2EE technologies. He developed a BPEL (Business Process Execution Language) Engine called BPELPower from scratch in NASA data center. As the chief architect, Dr. Yuan led and successfully launched several large scale Liferay/Alfresco projects for millions of users each month.
The author is fairly active in the Liferay community, and does have technical knowledge of the tool. However he's not a natural writer nor effective at functionality documentation. This book in particular is sadly really, really poor.
"In the same way, you can set the property users.email.address.required to false if you want to be able to create users without an e-mail address. Note that not requiring an e-mail address would disable some features that depend on an e-mail address being provided".
It might be that I missed one or two pieces of valuable information in this book, but generally they are simply not there. No guidance, no backgrounds (e.g., how does ntlm generally work und how does it work with Liferay?), absolutely no usage scenarios, no architectures, nothing useful in this book! Watch out for the bad comments on the 2008 version of this book. They are still valid.
