    Portlet Preferences store() error

    Bryan Cantwell Newbie

      I am using jboss portal 2.6.6. I have a struts portlet that works fine, except when I need to use prefs.store() to store preferences... I get:

      Caused by: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Store must be called within the scope of an action request
      at org.jboss.portal.portlet.impl.jsr168.api.PortletPreferencesImpl.store(PortletPreferencesImpl.java:282)
      at com.portlet.data_now.action.ViewAction.execute(ViewAction.java:56)
      at org.apache.struts.action.RequestProcessor.processActionPerform(RequestProcessor.java:419)
      ...

      here is the source for the class I get the error from:

      package com.portlet.data_now.action;
      
      import java.io.IOException;
      import java.security.NoSuchAlgorithmException;

       HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res) {
       RenderRequest pReq = (RenderRequest) req.getAttribute("javax.portlet.request");
       RenderResponse rRes = (RenderResponse) req.getAttribute("javax.portlet.response");
       PortletPreferences pr = (PortletPreferences) pReq.getPreferences();
       String fwd = "portlet.data_now.view";
       String alreadyOK = pr.getValue("verified", "");
       String isOK = null;
       String keytext = req.getParameter("licenseKey");
      
       if ((null != keytext) && (!keytext.equals(""))) {
       FileCreator fc = new FileCreator();
       String success = null;
       try {
       success = fc.makeKeyFile(keytext);
       } catch (IOException e) {
       System.out.println("Error writing key file: "+e);
       }
       }
      
       if ((alreadyOK == null) || (!alreadyOK.equals("1"))) {
       FileReader fr = new FileReader();
       try {
       isOK = fr.getLines(pReq, rRes);
       } catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException e) {
       e.printStackTrace();
       } catch (ReadOnlyException e) {
       e.printStackTrace();
       } catch (ValidatorException e) {
       e.printStackTrace();
       } finally {
       if((null != isOK)&&(isOK.equals("1"))){
       try {
       pr.setValue("verified", "1");
       pr.store();
       return mapping.findForward(fwd);
       } catch (ReadOnlyException e) {
       e.printStackTrace();
       }
       }
       }
       } else {
       isOK = "1";
       }
       if ((null == isOK) || (!isOK.equals("1"))) {
       fwd = "portlet.data_now.license";
       }
       return mapping.findForward(fwd);
       }
      }
      
      


      This same code works perfectly in another portal and I am trying to port this to jboss... any help here?
