Environment variables


This variable is optional and allows you to specify if the container is run using a debug configuration. In the case of Tomcat, port 9000 will be exposed for debugging the application server.


This variable is optional and allows you to specify any value to the JAVA_OPTS, which will be appended to the existint Tomcat JAVA_OPTS. If no variable is passed, then an empty string will be appended.

Customized Environment support

We have removed the database support from this repo, which means pruning all old branches with code related to databases. For that reason, we will only maintain the base image so you could extend it very easily using, i.e., Docker Compose.

Supported Application Servers

These are the supported App servers:

  • Tomcat

Branch name convention

Since Liferay Portal 7.1, I won't support any other configuration than the default, which is Tomcat + HSQL. For that reason, the convention for branch names, using - as separator, is:

  • Liferay major version: 7.1
  • Liferay release: beta3, ga1, ga2...

So, if you are using Liferay 7.1 Beta3, you should use the 7.1-beta3 branch.

The git branch is named using the same convention, i.e.:

For previous releases, I've removed the support in this repo for any database, which in the end is a matter of using docker compose for spinning up a database, and configuring the portal to connect to it. For this reason I want to keep this repo as simple as possible.
