    Feature request: Unique identifier of a portlet instance in

    Mark Vollmann Newbie

      This is a lack in the portlet specification, it does not define any method to retrieve context information about a portlet.

      To be precise sometimes you need to know the portlet page and the name of the portlet instance. Even though the specification doesnt even define portal pages, you sometimes just need a unique persistent identifier for a given portlet. This would normally be the combination of portal page and the name of portlet instance.

      This information already exists within PortletRequestImpl.instanceContext but is not accessible by a getter getInstanceContext().

      This would reduce the amount of hacking i had to do to adapt to jboss.
