I think most Windows users know, Windows zip extractor doesn't work too well with liferay files because some path+names are too long. Users have to download something like 7zips to extract it. This requires making users to download and install the extract software adding complexity to liferay installation.

This issue has been brought up before but hasn't been resolved. I'm getting some complaints from some user about this and there were couple of threads about users not being able to install liferay because of this.

I'm going to try to shorten the names on my Japanese demo versions to resolve this issue. Your thoughts?

Do we have a list of the paths/names that are too long?

Surely we could put a patch together for this and submit it as a bug. Then the lcepatchers.org guys could pull it in...

Hmm, that brings up an interesting question... If the lcepatchers.org guys pulled in and applied the patch that wasn't accepted for the core of Liferay, would Liferay.com have to accept and implement the patch because lcepatchers use it?

Icepatchers don't do this. They only patch what's patched on liferay github. That's the rule there and they shouldn't bend it.

Just wondering if there was a way to 'push' Liferay into fixing this... Just because a bug was opened and a patch submitted wouldn't mean they'd have to accept and/or apply it, regardless how much the community may want it...

As far as the list goes, I use WinZip and disable the zipfldrs extension, so I can't grab a list of the paths/files that are too big. Perhaps someone could pull a list together?

Just replacing string is the easy part. There's going to be some difficulty with the portlets that's using the methods. My users aren't too interested in installing new portlets from the net so it's really not that big of a problem. I think many developers will get very upset if liferay.com suddenly did this.

I'm separating a demo bundle with actual usage bundle. Demo bundles are setup by users so I want to make it simple. Actual usage bundles are setup by our engineers so they can be some what complicated.

Developers probably would complain but Marketing probably will agree with me. To think about it, liferay.com can just provide a simple script so developers would just be able to run it to convert their portlets. It won't be a problem here because clients want custom portlets anyways. They just want to see a demo to see what kinds of functions can be implemented in their own portlets.

To that end they could build a nice java installer that could extract the files w/o using windows zip folders...

Windows users don't have to install java now. It'll be ideal if users can just download, extract, and execute on Windows.
As of now, they have to get some other program to extract.

Installer would be another point of a bug to worry about. I probably don't want to see it too much.

Solved it. Will short\ly be making this it available. I'll need to make one for the 32 bit version and another for the 64 bit version.
