Scala infrastructure in plugins SDK
Company Blogs March 26, 2012 By Miguel Ángel Pastor Olivar
- You can create a new Scala based portlet by executing the create script: create.sh portlet_name porlet_display scala
- The previous command line execution will create a basic infrastructure with all the artifacts we need: a build.xml file, all the Scala library needed and a simple portlet class.
- Using the previous build.xml file we can compile Scala code, Java code, use scalac (the single one compiler and the daemon) and make our deployments. This infrastructure will take care of the mixed compilation process if you are using both Java and Scala as your development languages for your new portlet.
I have some more work to do, like including a command in order to allow updating the Scala libraries with a specific version or generating IDE files in an automatic way. The current version is working fine but I hope to improve during this weekend and push it to master.
Short entry; hopefully I will write a more detailed one with some more news: I am working on building an Scala wrapper on top of the Liferay API . . . so stay tunned!!
Hope you like it!
