Update on Vanilla Liferay integration

Dear Readers,

Since its early version (january 2008 … 5 years ago), we have provided Liferay support and Liferay integration for Vanilla modules. At that time, it was with Liferay 4 as far as I remember, integration was a success, especially because Liferay and Vanilla do respect development standard, and share many Open Source libraries.

We just released an update of our integration component, to support Vanilla 4.2 and Liferay 6. Honest, this time, integration is even more easy, because of new Liferay IDE. It was a couple of week development process to get a clean integration, with Single Sign On support, that allow users to run Vanilla reports from the Liferay portal. We did suffer some compatibility problems with IE9 (solved !) … so, it’s running now on all 5 browsers.

As an image is worth thousand words, just enjoy those print screens. For those who are using Vanilla, you can notice that we have redeveopped the left prompt interface for filter modification, and – as usual – you can either view the lastest report or refresh your report

Once again, Open Source experience matters ! And real development skills makes the difference when it comes to do a clean integration between 2 Open Source Platforms. I have heard some System Integrators tried to do this integration on their own … I’ll be happy to compare the results …

Have Fun !
