Do you know if the default JBoss Portal web-app is happy running as an isolated web app. e.g. are you relying on any JARs that are not in jboss/lib, jboss/server/default/lib and not in the jboss-portal.sar JARs?
P.S. are you guys going to be at LinuxWorld or JBoss World?
When it comes to mail and security, we may be leveraging some jars outside of whats included in the .sar. Perhaps Julien can clarify the use of the security jars, as he wrote that piece.
We should be at JBW Barcelona. Will you be there?
