I'd like to add an XML fragment inside a portlet preference in portlet.xml but any XML content is unavailable when trying to get the preference.
In all the following approaches the data in the value element is not available via the portlet preferences.
I've tried the following content in the portlet.xml file
1 : entity references rather than brackets.
2 : unescaped XML text
3 : XML in a CDATA section
but none worked.
In my posting my entity references were replaced with brackets in case 1 which should have read (ignoring my extra spaces).
