Developing the Innovillage Collaboration Portal
The main purpose of Innovillage is to bring people in the social and welfare field together, enable them to see what others are doing and to contact and collaborate with others working on similar projects and events. For Ambientia, Innovillage was a project where we implemented things "the Liferay way". The goal was to make sharing content between our portlet applications and the portal easier. We learned, for example, how to integrate our content to the portal search index and how to construct snippets of our content for viewing with Asset Publisher. We used many of Liferay's platform features, from the UI and programmatically, to make this possible.
