Recycle Bin Section Now Available in Developer's Guide

General Blogs May 8, 2014 By Cody Hoag Staff

There's been a lot of talk in the past year in regards to Liferay's new Recycle Bin framework. How do we use it? Why do we use it? Basic "user" based questions can be answered in our User Guide (Using Liferay Portal) section: Recycling Assets with the Recycle Bin. However, for a more comprehensive, in-depth guide for implementing the Recycle Bin framework for custom apps, you can now visit the Developer Guide's brand new Implementing the Recycle Bin in Your App section.

For this new Dev Guide section, we go through a detailed step-by-step guide explaining everything that is required to leverage the Recycle Bin in your personal app. Because the Recycle Bin is integrated with Liferay’s platform, configuring and implementing the Recycle Bin for your apps is easy. There are five Recycle Bin framework capabilities we discuss, in detail:

  • Moving Entries to the Recycle Bin
  • Restoring Entries from the Recycle Bin
  • Implementing the Undo Action
  • Moving/Restoring Parent Entities
  • Resolving Conflicts

While discussing these capabilities, we refer to code snippets taken from Liferay’s Jukebox Portlet plugin.
If you're interested in learning about the development side of Liferay's Recycle Bin framework, the Developer Guide's new section should be your first stop!
Special thanks to Julio Camarero and Jim Hinkey, for their helpful advice and guidance.
