Cities Generator is ONLINE— Dec 12, 2019 5:20:38 PM

Often you need to have in your application the updated list of cities to use for example in the registration pages, when you need to enter your city of birth or add a residence.

This my last job is interested in providing a complete service to obtain and query the list of cities in a particular country. It is available both as a docker image and as a library to import. Here you will find the details of the project. Good fun!

VOTA is started — Apr 12, 2019 7:18:38 AM

I released my new web application. It is a web application compatible with mobile devices to vote online. Configure parties and candidates from the console and add the rules according to the electoral law of the country. All voting information is stored in a database

It works with:

  • JDK 12
  • Gradle 5.2.1
  • React JS 16.8.4

You can download it through the docker command:

docker pull vige/vota 

To run the image use the command:

docker run -d --name vota -p443:8443 

Then open https://localhost to connect

For more info you can go to the VOTA project page:

Native XML API on Liferay 7 — Apr 7, 2018 8:54:40 AM

Hi all, Liferay 7.0 DXP SP7 by default uses the legacy XML libraries known as xml-api, xerces and xalan. Since many years they are included inside the JRE.

This legacy libraries included in tomcat 8 are cause of bugs inside Liferay. I share the steps how remove them, so you can use directly the native XML libraries inside the JRE.

1- Open the file inside ${home.liferay}/tomcat-8.0.32/bin and add the following properties in the CATALINA_OPTS:


2- Liferay 7.0 DXP SP7 has a bad error because it wires the old xerces libraries in the services code. So you need a patch to add in the ${home.liferay}/tomcat-8.0.32/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/lib folder. The patch can be can be found here

3- Build the patch through the command: mvn install and copy in the lib tomcat folder

4- XML libraries need the org.w3c.dom package working as system library. To add it and avoid unespected ClassNotFound exceptions put this property in the of Liferay:,__redirected, com.sun.jna,com.sun.ccpp,com.liferay.portal.servlet.delegate, com.sun.syndication,org.w3c.dom,sun.reflect

5- Restart Liferay

You are ready to work with the native XML libraries. Good work!
