    Need help regarding jboss portal development

    vikas dhaker Newbie

      hi all

      I installed the jboss portal 2.0 and managed to run sample portlets available on the portalswap with some modifications on a single page.
      Actually i m having a spring MVC application and i want it to convert it to a portal that will run under jboss portal in jboss AS.
      BUT now i dint know how to proceed in that direction as i am not able to find proper documentation or tutorials that can guide me in the portal development. The reference guides in the jboss site is not of much help.

      Can anyone suggest some good docs for the same. I m in a desperate need of that.
      Any help is greatly appreciated.

          Spring 2.0 M1 includes a Spring Portal MVC component. I have been trying to get is working under JBPortal 2.2, but there are a few issues:

          http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&p=3914627

          and

          http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/JBPORTAL-539

          Attached to the JIRA issue is a zip that contains the Spring Portal MVC demo configured for JBoss. When the Spring Portal developer does a workaround for this issue, I'll post another zip on JIRA and update this thread.

            Hi sherman

            Thanks for ur reply.

            Actually i got a sample spring MVC application and got it working after changing some configuration under JBPortal 2.0. You can find that app at

            http://labs.jboss.com/portal/index.html?ctrl:id=page.default.downloads&project=portletswap&category=.portlets.framework
            probably u can also have a try with it.

            I will try to work with the sample application mentioned by you at my end and see how it works

              Hi Sherman

              I tried to work out with the sample spring application that i downloaded from the link mentioned by you. But when i deployed the app i got an error saying that the child tag "pages" is missing from the "spring-portlet-example-portal.xml". Then i put the all the page entries in the "spring-portlet-example-portal.xml" but it again showed the error that the pages are already been registered as both the *-portal.xml file and *-pages.xml file contained the entries for the pages. Then i removed the *-pages.xml file and redeployed the app. Then it got deployed successfully.

              But when i requested the portal by giving the URL as http://localhost:8080/portal/spring-portlet-example it just showed me the JBPortal default page without any portlets. On the console i could see that everything was deployed correctly.

              Can u suggest what wrong i had done.

                I think you are running into some differences between JBPortal 2.0 and 2.2, which is what I am working with.

                There are still some problems with Spring 2.0 HEAD + JBPortal 2.2 - I am getting a NPE on getPortletMode still.

                  I tried to work with jbportal 2.2 but i wasn't able to run it on jboss AS 4.0.3sp1. After installing the portal i requested with the URL [http://localhost:8080/portal] but browser said that the resource is not available. When i saw the database table I found that the JBP_portal,JBP_page,JBP_portal_mode etc were empty however the JBP_portal_users,JBP_portal_roles etc were populated.

                  While starting the Jboss AS i found the following error on the console:-

                  09:58:41,687 INFO [StandardQueryCache] starting query cache at region: org.hibernate.cache.S

                    Thanks Sherman

                    I got jbportal 2.2 working on jboss AS 4.0.3sp1 but only with ther default database. with oracle 9i database it's still not working. I deployed your spring sample app and requested but was not able to see any page. Then i createed the *-object.xml as specified in the portal reference guide and added the jboss-app.xml and specified the app context in that file. After that i was able to see all the pages for the application but not able to perform any action on the books portlet as it is having issues mentioned by you.
                    I too want to convert my spring application to portlets,so i am trying to look into sample app for how it interact with spring.
                    Can u suggest some docs that will help me to understand the spring portlet component api's.

                    Once again thanks very much.
