LOS ANGELES, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ — Liferay, Inc., provider of the world's leading enterprise-class, open source portal and content management system, recently announced plans to standardize its products on jQuery, a leading open source JavaScript Library used to greatly simplify the writing of JavaScript code. Liferay, Inc. will now also provide business critical support for jQuery technology.

While other libraries may still be used, Liferay, Inc. will be standardized to use jQuery and its plugins. To lead this effort, the company welcomed Paul Bakaus, jQuery's lead UI developer, to its full-time staff. Bakaus has been mainly focused on transforming jQuery into a high-speed library capable of handling difficult large-scale rich interface operations. His new duties at Liferay, Inc. essentially allow him to be fully devoted to his ongoing role within the jQuery development team.

"Working for Liferay will have an enormous effect on the jQuery project," said Bakaus. "Not only will there be a company backing it now, but it's the best publicity an open source project can have: jQuery UI will run in huge intranets, on every copy of Liferay."

"We are thrilled to have Paul on board," added Brian Chan, Liferay Portal's Chief Software Architect. "He is already helping to deploy jQuery in several of Liferay's mission critical projects. We expect huge gains for both jQuery and Liferay Portal."

As part of its focus on jQuery technology, Liferay, Inc. is now also offering three levels of business critical support for jQuery and jQuery UI, the highest of which features 24-7, one hour response times.

"It is in everyone's interest to see jQuery enjoying a long life, growing to meet expectations of all kinds of clients and beyond," said Bakaus. "I now have no excuse not to focus on jQuery UI — After all, it's my day job!"
