    How can add information extra for a user in the registry portlet?

    wilson javier Newbie

      I just want to add more information when a user want to register on my site.


      I have read the reference guide and a section of chapter 6 says:

       

      http://docs.jboss.com/gatein/portal/3.1.0-FINAL/reference-guide/en-US/html/chap-Reference_Guide-Authentication_And_Identity.html#sect-Reference_Guide-Accessing_User_Profile


      "...

      The User Profile component contains extra information about a user, such as user's personal information, and business information. You can also add additional information about a user if your application requires it.

       

      "


      My question is how I can do this?, As I can add more fields for other data, and how I can save this data in the database?


      Thank you all for your valuable answers.

          Hi Wilson,

           

          the info from the docu ist correct, but the info is not really deep.

           

          To enter some more fields to a user profile you have to extend the registration

          portlet (or write a new one). Not really nice compared to the old version!

           

          1) download the src

           

          2) search for the UIRegisterInputSet

           

          3) extend the form with fields you need like that:

           

          addUIFormInput(new UIFormStringInput(EXTRA_NAME, EXTRA_NAME, null)
                      .addValidator(StringLengthValidator.class, 3,45)
                      .addValidator(MandatoryValidator.class)
                      .addValidator(ExpressionValidator.class, "^[\\p{L}][\\p{ASCII}]+$","FirstCharacterNameValidator.msg")
                      .addValidator(ExpressionValidator.class, "^[\\p{L}][\\p{L}._\\- \\d]+$", "ResourceValidator.msg.Invalid-char")
                  );

           

          4) build this part and deploy it, drop your database and restart your server

           

          You can find further information about the exo WebUI here:

          hope that helps!
