Liferay 6 will introduce semantic tagging

I was reading through the news in Liferay’s blog and found they had put out a blog on new functionality they have in Liferay 6.

The Semantic Web is an evolving development of the World Wide Web in which the meaning (that is, semantics) of information and services on the web is defined, making it possible for the web to understand and satisfy the requests of people and machines to use the web content.

Liferay goes Semantic Web! See ticket: Support RDF – Semantic Web.

The portal tagging system allows us to tag web content, documents, message board threads, and more and dynamically publish assets by tags. Tags provide a way of organizing and aggregating content. Basically, the tag administration determines which tags are available for use. The users use these tags on their content. Any content that is tagged can be grouped or aggregated.

The following figure depicts an overview of tags, categories, and assets:


Brian Kim of Liferay Inc, the commercial arm of Liferay portal, commented on the distinction between the active community and Liferay Inc.  There is a distinction and you have both community members and employees of Liferay Inc working on the next version of the portal.  I’ll work on getting more information on this to ensure it’s validity.  For now, the liferay blog posted it so I assume it’s still out there as a possible feature, it’s just not what the commercial arm is ready to talk about.

Thoughts on “Liferay 6 will introduce semantic tagging”

  1. Hi Michael,

    I couldn’t find an easy way to contact you so I thought I’d just leave you a comment here. While Jonas Yuan is an active community member, he is employed by one of our Service Partners, CIGNEX, and not by Liferay. As such, his views and opinions do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of Liferay, Inc.

    While the topic of Semantic Web is interesting, it is something that we are continuing to investigate internally within Liferay for future releases.

  2. Will you please elaborate further on what is causing you problems? Are you trying to use OpenLDAP as the user store for Liferay, or something else?
