    Creating a custom user page

    Doug Schnelzer Newbie

      What is the status on the ability for a user to create a custom page and select from a list of available portlets to add to their custom page? I did a search of the forums and JIRA, but didn't come up with much. I saw the http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/JBPORTAL-226 feature request, however this probably is not for a user specific page, but rather just the ability for an admin to dynamically configure a page/window/portlets. If the capability for a user to create a custom page is not planned for 2.2, can you give some guidance on how we could do this on our own?
      Thanks, Doug

          it will be developer in 2.2, the feature will be probably added in july/august and the gui management shortly after.

          the refactoring are almost finished, now all server objects like instances and pages are contained into containers. but these containers are mostly static, i.e they container are created from XML descriptors. We need to implement fully dynamic and persistent containers to containers runtime created objects (versus deployment created object) and it will be done.

            Julien, that's very cool. Let us know if there is some way we can help with this one. Thanks, Doug.

              Sure, for now it is still very internal but this looks very promising.

              One of the first we are going to add is a navigation API to provide navigation in different objects (page, portlet, instances, windows).

              The development of dynamic persistent containers will leverage JBoss Cache that will provide most of the functionnalities we need (thanks JBoss Cache for removing that hard work from our shoulders)
