Open Source version of Liferay is maybe fun to use, but really pain to deploy and develop. The Portlet API is too complicated and doesn't fit modern websites nor applications. Some solutions include using another framework for portlet implementation, e.g. grails-portlets plugin form Grails, but this introduces another problems: session sharing and authentication.... Web contents and ability to override every single default jsp page are great features, but you should expect more from mature CMS for Java. Community and documentation exist, but not very helpful in everyday use :( Enterprise version could be a better choice.
