Useful Patch for Liferay 6.1.1 GA2 - By Juan

Hi Everyone,

I was just looking out some solution for the problem which is coming out during migration and i found this forum article.

Nice forum article by Juan !!!!
It's really helpful to lookout and solve many issues for Liferay 6.1.1.

He is been doing some years ago, he has  released a patch for solving many issues for 6.1.1 GA2. He has tried to patch only bugs, not improvements.

For patching just unzip the .diff file into liferay 6.1.1 source folder (same folder level as portal-impl, portal-web, etc folders) and use patch command in Linux or other tools for Windows. After that just compile and enjoy!

Example on how to apply patch in Linux: patch -p0 < patch_6.1.1_juan.diff
