I need to be able to give my collaborators deep links into my portal. What is the recommeded approach to do this.
These deep links need to
1) address a specific page/portlet
2) pass parameters into this page/portlet
A RenderURL like the following works, but exposes a lot of JBoss details that I'm conserned may change over time.
Is there a recommended way for providing external parties deep links into JBoss Portals ?
I would hate to give out URLs like the above example if there is any chance of the URL syntax changing (is my example even correct ?). So I think I could use an Apache rewrite rule to translate a more simple URL into the JBossPortal syntax.
Appreciate your help.
URLs are subject to change per the spec. That's why within a portal you need to use the API to create the URLs.
In your case Apache rewriting is the best thing IMO.
