Simulation Panel Entry Template

In this article, you’ll learn how to create a Liferay simulation panel entry as a Liferay module. To create a simulation panel entry via the command line using Blade CLI or Maven, use one of the commands with the following parameters:

blade create -t simulation-panel-entry [-p packageName] [-c className] projectName

or

mvn archetype:generate \
    -DarchetypeGroupId=com.liferay \
    -DarchetypeArtifactId=com.liferay.project.templates.simulation.panel.entry \
    -DartifactId=[projectName] \
    -Dpackage=[packageName] \
    -DclassName=[className] \
    -DliferayVersion=7.1

You can also insert the -b maven parameter in the Blade command to generate a Maven project using Blade CLI.

The template for this kind of project is simulation-panel-entry. Suppose you want to create a simulation panel entry project called my-simulation-panel-entry with a package name of com.liferay.docs.application.list and a class name of SampleSimulationPanelApp. You could run the following command to accomplish this:

blade create -t simulation-panel-entry -p com.liferay.docs -c Sample my-simulation-panel-entry

or

mvn archetype:generate \
    -DarchetypeGroupId=com.liferay \
    -DarchetypeArtifactId=com.liferay.project.templates.simulation.panel.entry \
    -DgroupId=com.liferay \
    -DartifactId=my-simulation-panel-entry \
    -Dpackage=com.liferay.docs \
    -Dversion=1.0 \
    -DclassName=Sample \
    -Dauthor=Joe Bloggs \
    -DliferayVersion=7.1

After running the Blade command above, your project’s directory structure would look like this

  • my-simulation-panel-entry
    • gradle
      • wrapper
        • gradle-wrapper.jar
        • gradle-wrapper.properties
    • src
      • main
        • java
          • com/liferay/docs/application/list
            • SampleSimulationPanelApp.java
        • resources
          • content
            • Language.properties
          • META-INF
            • resources
              • simulation_panel.jsp
    • bnd.bnd
    • build.gradle
    • gradlew

The Maven-generated project includes a pom.xml file and does not include the Gradle-specific files, but otherwise, appears exactly the same.

The generated module is functional and is deployable to a Liferay Portal instance. To build upon the generated app, modify the project by adding logic and additional files to the folders outlined above. You can visit the simulation-panel-app sample project for a more expanded sample of a control menu entry. Likewise, see the Extending the Simulation Menu tutorial for instructions on customizing a simulation panel entry project.
