Web plugins are regular
Java EE web modules
designed to work with Liferay DXP. These plugins were stored in the
of the legacy Plugins SDK.
Upgrading a Liferay web plugin involves these steps:
Adapt the plugin to Liferay DXP 7.1’s API using the Liferay Upgrade Planner. When running the planner’s Fix Upgrade Problems step, many of the existing issues are autocorrected. For remaining issues, the planner identifies code affected by the new API and ways to adapt it.
After deploying the upgraded portlet, the server prints messages that indicate the following portlet status:
- WAR processing
- WAB startup
- Availability to users
You’ve upgraded and deployed your Liferay web plugin on your Liferay DXP 7.1 instance. Great job!
