Login Web Ext

The Login Ext Module sample demonstrates how to customize a default Liferay module’s source code. This example replaces the default login.jsp file in the com.liferay.login.web bundle by adding the text Hello from com.liferay.login.web.ext module! 2 + 2 = 4 to the Sign In form.

It also prints the following text to the console when you select Forgot Password from the Sign In form:

Before deploying the sample, you must stop the original bundle you intend to override. This is because the Ext sample’s generated JAR includes the original bundle source plus your modified source files. Follow the instructions below to do this:

  1. Connect to your portal instance using Gogo Shell.

  2. Search for the bundle ID of the original bundle to override. To find the com.liferay.login.web bundle, execute this command:

    lb -s | grep com.liferay.login.web

    This returns output similar to this:

    423|Active   |   10|com.liferay.login.web (3.0.4)

    Make note of the ID (e.g., 423).

  3. Stop the bundle:

    stop 423

Once the original bundle is stopped, deploy the Ext module. Note that you cannot leverage Blade or Gradle’s deploy command to do this. The deploy command deploys the module to the osgi\marketplace\override folder by default, which does not configure Ext modules properly for usage. You should build and copy the Ext module’s JAR to the deploy folder manually, or leverage Liferay Dev Studio’s drag-and-drop deployment feature.

What API(s) and/or code components does this sample highlight?

This sample demonstrates how to create an Ext module and configure it to replace a default module bundle.

How does this sample leverage the API(s) and/or code component?

You can create your own Ext module project by

  • Declaring the original module name and version.
  • Providing the source code that will replace the original.

To declare the original module in the build.gradle file properly (only supports Gradle), you must specify the original module’s Bundle Symbolic Name and the original module’s exact version. In this example, this is configured like this:

originalModule group: "com.liferay", name: "com.liferay.login.web", version: "3.0.4"

If you’re leveraging Liferay Workspace, you should put your Ext module project in the /ext folder (default); you can specify a different Ext folder name in workspace’s gradle.properties by adding


If you are developing an Ext module project in standalone mode (not associated with Liferay Workspace), you must declare the Ext Gradle plugin in your build.gradle:

apply plugin: 'com.liferay.osgi.ext.plugin'

Then you must provide your own code intended to replace the original one. Be sure to mimic the original module’s folder structure when overriding its JAR.

The following file types can be overlaid with an Ext module:

  • CSS
  • Java
  • JavaScript
  • Language files (Language.properties)
  • Scss
  • Soy
  • etc.

The Ext Gradle Plugin helps compile your code into the JAR. For example, .scss files are compiled into .css files, which are included in your module’s JAR file artifact. This is done by the buildCSS task.
