Hi Manish,

You can create Utility portlet in liferay where you just pass the existing html file and utility will read that file and can generate Liferay web content.
Once web content has been generated, you just need to create page and configure proper web content on that page using web content display portlet and proper layout.
You can also do last step(page creation) automatically but as you have small amount of pages, so it would be great of you create those pages manually from liferay itself.

Hi Jignesh,

Thanks for sharing your suggestion.I have some more query on above requirement like how can we tackle with content metadata like publisher,effective and expiry date,content reviewer,history,version control if it there.

Actually we have a similar requirement to migrate content (both static and dynamic) from portlet specific portal to Liferay 6.2 portal.
1.Content migration from Oracle PlumTree portal to Liferay6.2 EE portal.
We are looking for the way to migrate existing content (both static and dynamic type of content along with metadata).
What we can do:
DB to DB content migration with the help of ETL jobs.
DB to Liferay API content migration.
API to API content migration.
Existing portal having content have lot of image as resource on portlet and their resource path would be definitely different from Liferay prospect.So path of the images would be contradicting.

Manual way:
We can process with manual copy-paste from existing portal to Liferay portal but that will not allow to move content related to metadata of the content like author,effective and expiry date,approval info,history,version control and other stuffs.

Here i request you to provide your valuable suggestion and comment on this.
I would be very much thankful to you.

Best regards:
