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 er\default\.\tmp\deploy\tmp61403customnavigationportlet.ear-contents\customnavig ationportlet-exp.war\WEB-INF/portlet-instances.xml 16:58:49,203 INFO [PortletAppDeployment] <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" s tandalone="yes"?> <deployments> <deployment> <instance> <instance-id>CustomNavigationInstance</instance-id> <portlet-ref>CustomNavigationPortlet</portlet-ref> </instance> </deployment> </deployments> 16:58:49,203 WARN [PortletAppDeployment] Failed to create instance CustomNaviga tionInstance of portlet customNavigationPortletTest.CustomNavigationPortlet beca use portlet customNavigationPortletTest.CustomNavigationPortlet is not available 16:58:49,234 INFO [EARDeployer] Started J2EE application: file:/D:/JBP/NavTest/ jboss-portal-2.7.2/server/default/deploy/customnavigationportlet.ear 16:58:49,531 INFO [Http11Protocol] Starting Coyote HTTP/1.1 on http-127.0.0.1-8 080 16:58:49,562 INFO [AjpProtocol] Starting Coyote AJP/1.3 on ajp-127.0.0.1-8009 16:58:49,671 INFO [Server] JBoss (MX MicroKernel) [4.2.3.GA (build: SVNTag=JBos s_4_2_3_GA date=200807181417)] Started in 1m:12s:312ms
I tested the Custom Navigation Portlet with JBoss Portal 2.6.8 and now at least the CatalogPortletWindow is visible.
Are there any Informations how i can get the CustomNavigationPortlet get running under 2.7.2?
