LIFERAY POWERS NEW SPRINGSOURCE WEBSITE
November 29, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsLOS ANGELES – Liferay, Inc., provider of the world’s leading enterprise-class open source portal, announced that it is powering the new website for SpringSource, provider of Spring Framework, the leading Java™ and Java EE™ application framework. Formerly called Interface21, SpringSource launched www.springsource.com on the latest version of Liferay Portal as part of its company rebranding efforts.
“A strong online presence is essential to an open source business,” said Greg Schott, VP of Marketing at SpringSource. “The new website is a strategic extension of our product offering that will help us to better serve and interact with our community of users.”
SpringSource has helped hundreds of organizations, including some of the world’s largest financial institutions and public sector clients, build and deploy mission-critical applications that boost developer productivity and increase enterprise ROI. Spring Framework’s wide user community can now access a nimble, content friendly site powered by Liferay Portal with variable layers of functionality and levels of access.
In particular, Liferay Portal’s permissioning system gives SpringSource’s visitors varying levels of access to the site. For example, user level access to whitepapers (and other content) can be dynamically granted through webforms based on a user’s entries.
SpringSource is also using Liferay’s dynamic virtual hosting feature to power multiple domains on the same instance of Liferay. Each domain is able to have a unique look and set of capabilities, giving a company great flexibility in extending its community and business. “Liferay Portal’s features allow us to be very creative in the way that we maximize our online presence,” said Schott.
“We are very excited that SpringSource is leveraging Liferay not just to power a site but to help build the developer and user community around its product,” said Brian Chan, Liferay’s Chief Software Architect. “Spring Framework is a key component of Liferay Portal, and we certainly consider ourselves a member of that community.”
Deployed at enterprises worldwide in a variety of use cases, Liferay Portal addresses business needs that far exceed those of a typical public facing website. For more information and an online demo, visit www.liferay.com/web/guest/products.
