How to add a portlet to the Liferay Control Panel

If you want your portlet to be available in the liferay control panel, just add the following:



<control-panel-entry-category>portal</control-panel-entry-category>
<control-panel-entry-weight>2</control-panel-entry-weight>
<instanceable>false</instanceable>




control-panel-entry-category defines where the portal will be shown, for example "portal" or "server".




control-panel-entry-weight defines the position of the portlet in the category you defined above.

control-panel-entry-class is optional and is used to define rights (who can see the portlet and who doesn´t).



If you like this tutorial it would be very nice, if you could click on some of the google ads you see on the right side. It helps me run this block and motivates me ;)
