Hi! I'm new to Liferay, and I'm a little confused on how it works. I'm having a really tough time understanding its structure (I don't usually do!).
I'm just trying to make a simple portlet to scale out from that point and be able to program portlets, even if in a simple and archaic way (I don't really care; I just need this working in a few days). An important point to achieve this, is to be able to use actions.
Check this code. I downloaded this example from a website, but it's not working for me (I use Liferay 6.2):
This is my controller portlet:
This is supposed to work this way: you write a string in the input field, click on the submit button, and what you wrote should appear in the view as "User name is: whatYouWrote". But I don't see anything more than this:
Somehow, actions are not working properly here. What change should I perform to get this working? Can anyone tell me in a simple way how these actions work?
