11 Jul

Disclaimer – Following is not the best or optimal solution. If you have better suggestion please write in comments

JournalVmUtil was present upto Liferay 5.2 and then deprecated in Liferay 6.0 and then completed removed in Liferay 6.1. If you are upgrading to 6.1 and make extensive use of JournalVmUtil you can do the following.

Extend Following code example is just a sample. Feel free to add any pre-processing or post-processing as required

package com.myexamples.mypackage;

import com.liferay.portal.kernel.templateparser.TemplateNode;
import com.liferay.portal.kernel.xml.Element;
import com.liferay.portlet.journal.util.VelocityTemplateParser;

import java.util.List;

 * @author parasjain
public class MyVelocityTemplateParserImpl extends VelocityTemplateParser{
    public List getNodes(Element element) throws Exception {
        return getTemplateNodes(element);

Now inject MyVelocityTemplateParserImpl in your velocity templates and just call getNodes method like this

#set( $articleTemplateNodes = $myVelocityTemplateParser.getNodes($articleXmlDocument.getRootElement()) )
