      I cant' graphically wire two events that have different names but their payload is equal (same <value-type> in portlet.xml)


      Description:
      I have created two portlets: portletA and portletB, each one in its own WAR file (testing purposes)

      When I click in a certain link in portletA, I want an event to be sent to portletB.
      Both events have the same payload (<value-type>), but their qnames are different:

      portlet.xml (portletA):

       ...
       <supported-publishing-event>
       <qname>a:senderName</qname>
       </supported-publishing-event>
       </portlet>
      
       <event-definition>
       <qname>a:senderName</qname>
       <value-type>java.lang.String</value-type>
       </event-definition>
       ...
      



      portlet.xml (portletB):
       ...
       <supported-processing-event>
       <qname>a:remitente</qname>
       </supported-processing-event>
       </portlet>
       <event-definition>
       <qname>a:remitente</qname>
       <value-type>java.lang.String</value-type>
       </event-definition>
      


      As you can see, portletA publishes the event senderName and portletB processes remitente.

      I've carefully read Chapter 8 of the JBoss Portal Reference Manual, and I understand that I should be able to wire the event senderName and
      remitente, so when portletA produces the event, portletB receives it.

      I create a page in the default portal and add to it portletA and portletB.
      Then I go to the Coordination section of the default page, but the Event wirings section contains:
      No available events. Cannot create new event wirings.


      Am I doing something wrong, or is a bug in the product?

      (Some of you might think that if I'm developing both portlets, I can place them in the same .War file. But I am interested in developing a portlet that interacts with portlets not developed by me)

      Thank you.
