Create simple plugin portlet (Liferay MVC )

This is very simple but will be useful to new developer and start with liferay development:

1) First of all setup you r liferay as shown in (Liferay Setup)
2) Now make ready deployment environment using below steps
    =>  Go to pligin-sdk package
    =>  Change or override build.properties with the help of your machine user name for e.g
    => build.jignesh.vachhani.properties. Please make sure dotn update existing build.properties just make
    => another copy with build.jignesh.vachhani.properties
 Now open build.<username>.properties  and set with below settings


  #
    # Specify the paths to an unzipped Tomcat bundle.
    #
    app.server.type=tomcat
    app.server.dir=D:/Liferay_New/tomcat/liferay-portal-6.1.0-ce-ga1/tomcat-7.0.23
    app.server.deploy.dir=${app.server.dir}/webapps
    app.server.lib.global.dir=${app.server.dir}/lib/ext
    app.server.portal.dir=${app.server.dir}/webapps/ROOT

##
## Auto Deploy
##

    #
    # Plugins will be deployed to this directory. Make sure that Liferay is
    # also set to scan this directory.
    #
    auto.deploy.dir=D:/Liferay_New/tomcat/liferay-portal-6.1.0-ce-ga1/deploy
Note:  you can check machine user name with "set" command in command prompt.

3) Now go to command prompt and run the command as show in below screenshot :



4) Now portlet(product-master1-portlet) has been created under  D:\Liferay_New\plugins-sdk\portlets\ folder

5) you can deploy this portlet using simple Ant deploy command (See below screenshot)
