Welcome to XMLPortletFactory Home Site

XMLPortletFactory is a software tool that creates database tables maintenance (CRUD) portlets from XML files.  Portlets generated only work on Liferay portals, and come out with source files (JSPs, .java, etc.) so programmers can extend and modify whatever is being generated to suit your software development needs.  In Help and Support section you will find Wikis, Tutorials and samples to get started.

With XMLPortletFactory you will be able to generate full CRUD working portlets with ease, accelerating your development process, allowing you to focus on higher level tasks.

XMLPortletFactory is licensed under the terms of GNU General Public License version 3.0 (GPLv3), and is OS Independent.

Note: XMLPortletFactory is still a young project, which ha not passed all possible tests and although is very solid and I use it in production environments, you should use it after appropriate tests.

Some of the most noticeable benefits

  • Frees you of 99% coding time in CRUD table maintenance portlets. You obtain full working portlet with all source code, programmers heaven!!!.
  • No more problems with versions. You make one XML file, generate portlet in all 6.0.x, 6.1.x and 6.2.x versions of Liferay.
  • Forget about creating tables. Because XMLPortletFactory uses Liferay's  service builder, tables are automatically created for you at portlet deployment.
  • Languages English, French, Italian, Finnish and Spanish allready implemented, easy to implement other languajes.
  • Is GPLv3 licensed. The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for software and other kinds of works.
  • Your developed XMLs get the benefits of new XMLPortletFactory developments and improvements. 
  • Generated portlets use Liferay's search container, tags, etc. so they have very "Liferay" behavior, melting very well with themes.

The hotel distribution company

The hotel distribution company that Pegasus Solutions recently spun off to HIG Capital will be called DHISCO and will be led by Toni Portmann, who has taken on the roles of CEO and executive chairman of the board, according to her LinkedIn profile. Portmann, who currently serves on the board of Support.com and most previously was CEO of LockIN, says DHISCO is “soon to be the new name of a carve-out of Pegasus Electronic Distribution Systems Company.”Katherin Dockerill, DHISCO’s vice president of marketing, has confirmed the name of the new company, saying DHISCO stands for Distribution Hospitality Intelligent Services Co.In the late 1980s a division of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., with an assist from global hotel chains, formed the Pegasus predecessor, THISCO (The Hotel Industry Switch Co.)“And now, as a nod to our past, HISCO becomes DHISCO, Dockerill says. Portmann’s LinkedIn profiles says DHISCO connects “100,000 hotels’ rooms and rates to consumers worldwide.” The company will distribute hotel rates to online travel agencies as dulichso.com, global distribution systems, and other distribution channels. The online travel world is currently dominated by men, and Portmann will join the ranks of female CEOs among established travel companies, including TUN of hotels in Hanoi Vietnam, Barrie Seidenberg of Viator and Beatrice Tarka of Mobissimo, among others. Pegasus Solutions itself, which will focus on the hotel reservations side of the business and was acquired by Regent Equity Partners in October, is headed by Scott Gibson, most previously Best Western CIO, who was named CEO of Pegasus in November. Dockerill elaborates on the new business and branding: “Pegasus has recently completed a recapitalization and has a new owner/investor, H.I.G. Capital. As a result, the distribution division - Pegasus Electronic Distribution Services—is now a standalone company. Our strategic, even zealous, focus is to “connect the world” by providing intelligent distribution solutions that drive our clients’ success. “Toni Portmann is the new CEO of this distribution company, and the leadership team has completed a strategic planning process and created a vision and set of strategic initiatives for the new company. Our vision is to ‘connect the world’ — and we mean just that. As the single largest processor of electronic hotel transactions, delivering advanced and affordable connectivity and distribution solutions to over 100,000 hotels worldwide, we are now equipped to enhance both our services and products.”
