Does anyone know of an enhanced Catalog Portlet for Portal 2.4?
We are developing a Portal using JBoss Portal 2.4 on JBoss AS 4.0.5 that is more like a tree navigation to get to content or external systems. The site will go 3 or 4 levels deep in menus and needs to be bi-lingual. We also want it to be "out-of-the-box" as much as possible. The shortcomings we see to the Catalog portlet are:
- no navigation provided back up the tree - you must use the back button (does history not parent) or tabs (back to the beginning)
- the order of the "choices" (pages) can not be selected
- the choices move around because the current choice moves to the top
- the choices are not localizable (through resource bundles)
I saw the Jira on the Navigation Portlet (to add tab order and resource key) so we could use a similar thing here. I just wanted to check to see if anyone has done any of these enhancements already before we go diving in.
