Orbeon Forms has had Liferay portal support for quite a while, but it turns out that we hadn't quite done everything we could to make it easy to deploy Orbeon Forms to Liferay. So we have just done the following:
The Orbeon Forms WAR file (
ops.war) is now built in such a way that it can deploy directly to Liferay. There is no need to create your own descriptors or configurations to get started (of course you can always customize things later).
There is documentation explaining how you deploy to Liferay and add an Orbeon Forms portlet in just a few steps.
The great thing about Orbeon Forms and portlets is that Orbeon Forms hides the complexity of the Portlet API to allow most Orbeon Forms applications to work unmodified within portals. Here is how one of the Orbeon Forms example applications looks in a Liferay portlet:
If you try deploying Orbeon Forms to other JSR-168 compliant portals, please let us know the results!
