Please, send any pull request to the user @liferay and the branch develop and we will start a discussion there about your changes.
The master branch of the Liferay Audience Targeting application is developed for Liferay 6.2 CE using the 6.2 version of the plugins SDK.
The Audience Targeting application is designed as a framework to be extended by other developers easily. See this DEVELOPING guide.

We welcome any and all contributions! If you have an idea for a new plugin or a new feature in an existing plugin, and wish to implement it, just send a pull request to the user @liferay and to the branch develop and we will start a discussion there around your changes.
In order to execute the Integration tests locally you have to go through the following steps:
- Append the test modules to the
plugins.includesproperty of your build..properties file:
plugins.includes=<all other audience targeting application modules>,*-test,runtime-test-dependencies
- Make sure you have deployed all the Audience Targeting application plugins and that your server is running.
- Go to apps/content-targeting and run
ant test. In order to run the tests from the IDE (e.g. IntelliJ), you should update the folder of the runner to use the folder of your plugin as the working directory.
The OSGi bundle console gives information about the bundles that are currently available in the container and allows some operations over them. In order to start the console you need to add this line to your portal-ext.properties
Then you can just run
telnet localhost 11311 once the Audience Targeting
application plugins have been deployed.
Some useful commands:
- bundles: list bundles and status
- start [bundle id]: starts a bundle
- stop [bundle id]: stops a bundle
- uninstall [bundle id]: uninstalls a bundle
