Radio Liferay Episode 21: Jim Hinkey. Bringing back Javadocs

Company Blogs 31 de mayo de 2012 Por Olaf Kock Staff

  My apologies for the long break in publishing the episodes - I got distracted with a lot of work and once there is an interruption of a habit, you probably know how hard it is to get back into it. I hope to be on track again now and will publish the archive of already recorded episodes soon - and produce more of them.

This is another episode recorded at the previous Liferay Retreat. I sat together with Jim Hinkey, Knowledge Engineer and part of Liferay's knowledgement and documentation team, since March 2011. He took over ownership of the developer's guide and is the guy to bring back javadoc to Liferay (more about this and how/why Liferay once lost its javadoc at the end of this episode)

We talked about

  • How Jim found Liferay
  • Life in Raleigh/NC
  • One of his biggest chokes, the (re)creation of javadocs for Liferay
  • The process that Javadoc now has to go through in order to get into the product
  • and other topics

As I managed to get short hold of Brian Chan, I had the opportunity to ask two more quick questions - one about the day when Liferay lost all of its javadoc and one sneaky question about consistency with the example of ThemeDisplay. If you - like me - always wondered where this name came from, you'll have to listen to this episode.

Last but not least, pardon the pun, but this was too good to be true - I just had to include this: geekandpoke cartoon about documentation

(The source for this cartoon is geekandpoke, licensed under Creative commons by-sa 3.0. Thank you so much, Oliver Widder)

You'll find this episode - and make sure that you don't miss any of the future episodes - by subscribing to the RSS feed, on itunes or with your podcatcher of choice - you'll find all the options on And if you want to get notified when the next episode is out, follow @RadioLiferay

Hi Olaf, I want to ask you a question. Sorry... Hitesh Gulati 16 de junio de 2012 1:37

Hi Olaf,

I want to ask you a question. Sorry if I am posting it at the wrong place. Please pardon me for that as I am new to this community and I dont know where to post it.

As of now I am using Liferay 5.2. Initially I was able to publish all my pages in my application. But I am now facing problems in publishing. Can you please list out some common problems that I can check for so as to publish the pages again.

Thanks and Regards,
Hitesh Gulati
