Once you’ve upgraded your plugin, you can optimize it to take advantage of all Liferay DXP 7.1 offers. If you haven’t yet familiarized yourself with what’s changed from Liferay Portal 6, the new benefits for developers, OSGi and modularity, and the improved tooling, make sure to do so as they’ll help you understand and appreciate the optional improvements for plugins and plugin development these tutorials demonstrate.
Here are some common optimizations to consider:
- Migrating to environments that help you develop and test more quickly, such as the Liferay Theme Generator for themes and Liferay Workspace for modules and web applications.
- Adapting plugins to Liferay’s modular architecture and updated frameworks, such as Service Builder.
- Styling your app consistently using Clay –the web implementation of Lexicon, Liferay’s design language.
- Modularizing apps to reap the benefits of modularity.
