hi, my idea is to modify the login portlet and the theme of the login page, also try to use another database for the login portlet so i can create diferent instances of the same portlet for diferent portals.
Login screen in jboss portal is not actually a portlet.
Its a plain jsp page that integrates with the Tomcat JAAS login Module for authentication.
It is easier to achieve what you are trying to do, by creating a different login screen for each one of your portals, and using a different JAAS login module to perform the authentication of each portal.
Hope this points you in the right direction.
Maybe you can definite a custom JAAS authentication class to instead.
thakns sohil.shah and jsports , i will look for jass jsp page, but in the portal the "login portlet" its in english, that why i would like it to modify it.
Another question is about the CMS, i would like to create diferent private folders for the instances of portals.
sorry but this is a constructive point: ¿why if JB portal is a portal contenedor the login and cms portlets are dificult to instance for diferent portals?
i will look for the login module and check the jackrabbit documentation. but that the long way :P
ok i understand you use diferent jass modules but where i can find that? y check portal.sar but theres nothing :P
actually if y loggin to portalA im logged to portalB too that's not the idea of a portal of portals or i'm wrong?
checkout portal.sar/conf/logn-config.xml. This is where the default JAAS login module for the top level portal running under /portal directory is specified.
You can specify as many portals as you like similar to /marketing, /accounting, /somethingelse and associate a login module for each context.
As far as CMS goes, by default there is a top-level folder called /default where all the content is stored and rendered by the CMSPortlet.
For each of your portals you use a slightly modified CMSPortlet that points to /myfolder instead of /default to render its content
ok, correct me if i'm wrong please:
!!!! this is the original DB file (example)
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <datasources> <local-tx-datasource> <jndi-name>PortalDS</jndi-name> <connection-url>jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/jbossportal?useServerPrepStmts=false</connection-url> <driver-class>org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver</driver-class> <user-name>root</user-name> <password>admin</password> </local-tx-datasource> ------here i add my other DB config ----- <datasources> <local-tx-datasource> <jndi-name>PortalDS</jndi-name> <connection-url>jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/nicolas?useServerPrepStmts=false</connection-url> <driver-class>org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver</driver-class> <user-name>nicolas</user-name> <password>nicolas</password> </local-tx-datasource> </datasources>
here i add all DB i want to connect
now the login-config.xml:
<application-policy name="portal"> <authentication> <login-module code="org.jboss.portal.core.security.jaas.ModelLoginModule" flag="required"> <module-option name="unauthenticatedIdentity">guest</module-option> <module-option name="hashAlgorithm">MD5</module-option> <module-option name="hashEncoding">HEX</module-option> <module-option name="userModuleJNDIName">java:/portal/UserModule</module-option> <module-option name="additionalRole">Authenticated</module-option> <module-option name="password-stacking">useFirstPass</module-option> </login-module> </authentication> </application-policy>
now i have to change java:/portal/UserModule by java:/myportal , thats all?
and every time i create a portal and i want a unique database for this portal i do this?
about the CMS repository i tried to change the cms by the portal instances without result, i download the portal source to modify cms managaer portlet and force it to change root folder by an xml file but where its the code? i found many java files.
thanks for your time and for helping this noob
