          Hi,

          my idea (implemented in my project) was to extend DefaultPortalCommandFactory and SignOutURLFactory to change the page/URL to redirect to role default page. The two factoris replace the standard factories CommandFactory and SignOutURLFactory.

          For example, the redirect to home factory is something like this :


          public class RedirectHomeFactory extends DefaultPortalCommandFactory {

          /** Log */
          private static final Log LOG = LogFactory.getLog(RedirectHomeFactory.class);

          /** Slash */
          private static final String SLASH = "/";

          /** Mapping */
          private Properties mapping;

          /**
          * Get mapping
          * @return Mapping
          */
          public Properties getMapping() {
          return mapping;
          }

          /**
          * Set mapping
          * @param mapping Mapping
          */
          public void setMapping(Properties mapping) {
          this.mapping = mapping;
          }

          /**
          * {@inheritDoc}
          */
          @Override
          public ControllerCommand doMapping(ControllerContext context, ServerInvocation serverInvocation, String host, String contextPath, String requestPath) {
          // Command
          ControllerCommand command = null;
          // Get http request and check roles
          HttpServletRequest request = serverInvocation.getServerContext().getClientRequest();

          // Redirect only if portal is not specified
          if (requestPath != null && (requestPath.trim().length() == 0 || requestPath.trim().equals(SLASH))) {
          // Flag
          boolean found = false;
          // Role
          String role = null;

          // Get roles
          Enumeration enumeration = mapping.keys();

          while (!found && enumeration.hasMoreElements()) {
          // Get role
          role = (String) enumeration.nextElement();

          // Check role
          if (request.isUserInRole(role)) {
          // Get portal and page of role
          String[] portalAndPage = mapping.getProperty(role).split(SLASH);

          if (portalAndPage == null || portalAndPage.length < 2) {
          throw new IllegalStateException("Wrong portal/page for role " + role);
          }

          // Get portal
          Portal portal = getContainer().getContext().getPortal(portalAndPage[0]);

          if (portal == null) {
          throw new IllegalStateException("Default portal does not exist");
          }

          // Get default page
          Page page = portal.getPage(portalAndPage[1]);

          if (page == null) {
          throw new IllegalStateException("Default page does not exist");
          }

          // Log
          LOG.debug("Redirect to " + portal.getName() + " " + page.getName());

          command = new ViewPageCommand(page.getId());
          found = true;
          }
          }

          if (!found) {
          // Log
          LOG.debug("Default redirect, no mapped role");

          // Default command
          command = super.doMapping(context, serverInvocation, host, contextPath, requestPath);
          }
          } else {
          // Log
          LOG.debug("Default redirect");

          // Default command
          command = super.doMapping(context, serverInvocation, host, contextPath, requestPath);
          }

          return command;
          }

          }



          and the mbean that replace the standard portal mbean :


          <!-- Redirect to user home -->
          <mbean code="com.yourcompany.RedirectHomeFactory"
          name="portal:commandFactory=RedirectHome" xmbean-dd=""
          xmbean-code="org.jboss.portal.jems.as.system.JBossServiceModelMBean">


          role=portal/default

          <depends optional-attribute-name="NextFactory" proxy-type="attribute">portal:commandFactory=Delegating
          <depends optional-attribute-name="Container" proxy-type="attribute">portal:container=PortalObject



          you have to change the portal mbean controller properties :


          <!--
          <depends
          optional-attribute-name="CommandFactory"
          proxy-type="attribute">portal:commandFactory=DefaultPortal

          -->
          <depends
          optional-attribute-name="CommandFactory"
          proxy-type="attribute">portal:commandFactory=RedirectHome




          For the signout the code is the same :


          public class SignOutFactory extends SignOutURLFactory {

          /** Log */
          private static final Log LOG = LogFactory.getLog(SignOutFactory.class);

          /** Location */
          private static final String LOCATION = "location";

          /** Mapping */
          private Properties mapping;

          /**
          * Get mapping
          * @return Mapping
          */
          public Properties getMapping() {
          return mapping;
          }

          /**
          * Set mapping
          * @param mapping Mapping
          */
          public void setMapping(Properties mapping) {
          this.mapping = mapping;
          }

          /**
          * {@inheritDoc}
          */
          @Override
          public ServerURL doMapping(ControllerContext context, ServerInvocation serverInvocation, ControllerCommand controllerCommand) {
          // URL
          ServerURL serverURL = super.doMapping(context, serverInvocation, controllerCommand);

          if (serverURL != null) {
          // Get http request and check roles
          HttpServletRequest request = serverInvocation.getServerContext().getClientRequest();

          // Flag
          boolean found = false;
          // Role
          String role = null;

          // Get roles
          Enumeration enumeration = mapping.keys();

          while (!found && enumeration.hasMoreElements()) {
          // Get role
          role = (String) enumeration.nextElement();

          // Check role
          if (request.isUserInRole(role)) {
          // Get location for role
          try {
          serverURL.setParameterValue(LOCATION, URLEncoder.encode(mapping.getProperty(role), "UTF-8"));
          } catch (UnsupportedEncodingException encEx) {
          LOG.error("Unsupported encoding " + encEx);
          }

          found = true;
          }
          }
          }

          return serverURL;
          }

          }


          the mbean :


          <!-- Redirect to user login -->
          <mbean code="yourcompany.SignOutFactory"
          name="portal:urlFactory=SignOut" xmbean-dd=""
          xmbean-code="org.jboss.portal.jems.as.system.JBossServiceModelMBean">


          role=portal/YourPortal

          /signout
          <depends optional-attribute-name="Factory" proxy-type="attribute">portal:urlFactory=Delegating



          and comment out the portal signout mbean :


          <!--
          <mbean
          code="org.jboss.portal.core.controller.command.mapper.SignOutURLFactory"
          name="portal:urlFactory=SignOut"
          xmbean-dd=""
          xmbean-code="org.jboss.portal.jems.as.system.JBossServiceModelMBean">

          /signout
          <depends
          optional-attribute-name="Factory"
          proxy-type="attribute">portal:urlFactory=Delegating


          -->


          This solution redirects to default role portal only if the user doesn't specify the complete URL, to prevent users to go to another portal you have to add security-constraint into your portal-object.xml file.

            Sorry, but mbean xml config files are not properly rendered, but if you see the html page source you should be able to extract them
