    Deep linking into JBoss Portal from ouside the portal

    Tom Hampton Newbie

      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.

      http://localhost:8080/index.html?ctrl:cmd=render&ctrl:windowstate=normal&ctrl:window=MyPortal.MyPage.MyWindow&MyParam=MyValue

      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.
