    A couple of doubts while using JBoss Portal 2.4 GA? - Newbie

    mmontoni Newbie

      Hi,

      I am a newbie in Jboss portal development so I apologize if my question is too immature yet ;-)

      I am developing a portal using jboss portal 2.4 ga. I have the source code. Once I deploy it to my JBoss AS I have a jboss-portal.sar. What if I need to have 2 portals under the same deploy directory? How can I rename the .sar file?

      Another question is...how can I change the theme? I know I can create a myTheme.war and change the default-portal.xml to point to that new theme but I can't seem to find that file in the .sar directory...?

      I appreciate the help...

      Thanks,
      Mariella.

          The 2.4 portal comes with documentation in the docs directory.

          For basic deployment information, see the QuickStart Guide, section 5, Deploying Portlets, or see the Reference Guide, section 5, Portlet Primer.

          For information on creating your own theme, see the Reference Guide, section 12, Layouts and Themes.

          If all you want to do is select from one of the existing themes, once you are logged in, clcik the "Edit your profile" link in the User Portlet, and then choose the desired theme in the drop-down list box in the Persoanl Information window.

            Hi Peter,

            thank you for your promptly reply.

            I saw the documentation. I know how to deploy portlets....Please, correct me if I am wrong. A Portal is a collection of portlets...So I need to create 2 portals for 2 different divisions for my company. Those 2 portals will have several portlets but will be hosted under the same production server. How can I do to give different names to these portlas?

            Thank you so much,
            Mariella.

              I dont think you have to create two portals, one for company division!
              The portal must be one, with several sites into, for example one for any division you wish, than, according to which user you log in, you can land on the right company division's site.

              Ciao

                Isn't that personalization? Do you know where I can find that in the documentation...?

                Also, I was using the bet version of 2.4.0 and now I am trying to install the GA version. I downloaded the source code of it. When I extracted the .../thirdparty dir is not there. This is causing an error when I try to to do build deploy. It is saying it can't find the antlr under the thirdparty dir.

                Thanks,
