I understand that JBoss Portal is built with many portlets relying on the Apache JSF libraries.
If I build an application with NetBeans, using the Sun JSF RI libraries, I am told that in order to deploy to JBoss, I must remove the jsf-libs folder containing the Apache libs from the JBoss server before deploying. This has worked for me, perhaps there is another way?
My question is: does this mean (assuming the above is true) that I cannot use any portlets built for JBoss (such as the Management portlet) if I am to deploy my own NetBeans apps to the same server?
It means that you need to embed the MyFaces libraries in the Management portlet war. (That's the only JSF portlet shipped with the default JBoss Portal)
