    *-object.xml in GateIn

    jaroslav skraban Newbie



        I would like to know if there is similar oportunity in GateIn portal regarding definition of pages as it is in Jboss Portal. I mean it was possible to write portlet-instances.xml and *-object.xml descriptors to define portal/page/window and which was parsed during war deployment (with overwrite tag the definition was updated in portal database). If no is there some way to define this in war?

          GateIn currently does not have this feature, it has been asked about a few times on the forum and a task has been created for it https://jira.jboss.org/browse/GTNPORTAL-870. It is something that needs to be looked into.


          GateIn does have the concept of extending a portal (see the sample extension). This will allow for things like adding pages and populating them with portlets, and can be setup in a portlet's war file with xml files. But, its a bit more complex than the way JBoss Portal did things and is _only_ deployable when the portal is first initiated (ie if the server has been started once before, its too late).
