The highly anticipated Marketplace will be the premier destination for solutions built on the Liferay Platform, enabling Liferay customers, partners, ISVs, and the wider community to easily publish, share, and monetize these applications.

The Liferay Portal platform boasts a global community of 45,000 fans and users as well as over 4 million lifetime downloads of its freely available open source version.
