    Problems getting "Custom Navigation Portlet" running

    Bob Smith Newbie

      Hello,

      i am trying to get the Custom Navigation Portlet running. I downloaded it http://www.jboss.org/portletswap/downloads/portlets/miscellaneous/?action=a&windowstate=maximized and deployed the customnavigationportlet.ear under \server\default\deploy .
      Now i can access a portal under http://localhost:8080/portal/portal/customNavigationPortletTest/StartPage, but it does still have the look and feel of the standard portal and it only consists of 2 empty pages...
      Instances of the portlets that should be used dont exist.

      The following is part of the report and shows that an instance of CustomNavigationPortlet isnt available:

      16:58:49,203 INFO [PortletAppDeployment] These instances have been found in -ob
      ject.xml, you should put them in the file D:\JBP\NavTest\jboss-portal-2.7.2\serv

      I am using version 2.7.2 of JBoss Portal
