I looked at source code. It looks it is not customizable in terms of property name/values pair. The UserPortlet, like other portlets, should use public API ? But it uses lots of JBoss impl APIs.
I have also the opinnion that the user portlet needs some refinement, because it is a very important element of the portal.
Can I develop my own UserPortlet using JBoss AS Login model? where is the difficulty? different types of accounts need to have different info. Thanks
Anyone using JBoss Portal seriously such as commercial web site? UserPortlet is a big limitation, and user/roles based default page too, ie. after a user's login, which page to go? For example, Job hunting web site, job seekers and companies have different account info. Any help appreciated.
after login you go on the page the user wanted to see :
for instance user is on page /abc
he clicks on /auth/def which requires authentication
he is diverted to the auth page
then he goes on page /auth/def
jboss portal use the servlet container authentication to proceed to login.
Thanks for reply.
In the portlet spec 1.0, PLT.17 User Information and PLT.D User Information attribute names. Are they intended for User information to be customizable. The attribute names include
These attribute names may be for business users.
Does the UserPortlet support these attribute names?
The spec says:
The deployment descriptor of a portlet application must define the user attribute names
the portlets use.
But they are not defined by Jboss Portal/portlets.
Thanks for help.
Can I plugin something(a module) to make the UserPortlet support both personal and business account? The current UserPortlet is for personal account. Thanks.
