Hi,

I am very new to Portlet technology.
I want to use Pluto Portlet with JBoss Portal server.
Can you provide any link or sample example link for developing
and deploy pluto porlet application in JBoss Portal or any other
portal.

I have few question also:
1 If i use Jboss Portal to deploy Pluto portlet do i need to use any other
portlet container wid JBoss portal?
[i know this might be very obevious for you ppl but i am totaly confused after reading few topic on Portlet]
Please make me clear.

2 Do we have any IDE to develop and deploy portlet application?

Please reply soon ....

Thank you in advance,

Mohit

"Bulletproof Monk",
Your display name was originally valid, now it is not.

Please change it back since accounts with invalid display names get deleted, often without warning.

thanks,
Dave.

I just want to make sure we're on the same page here....

What exactly do you want to deploy?

Pluto is a portal container itself, just like JBossPortal.

However, if your question is "how do I deploy a JSR-168 compliant portlet on JBossPortal?" (which I think is similar to the question you asked in the JBossPortal Forums). Then the answer is to:
1: install JBoss Portal
2: deploy a portlet onto JBossPortal

Good luck!

Hi

Thank you Jessica.

You are right i had posted same question on JBossForum also.

I tried to follow all the steps what JbossReference Guide has given.

Here i have one small clarification.
We are using Pluto Portlet api to create portlet application,like servlet api.

and once we done with application development we need to deploy it on JBossPortal server.

Now i am clear with confusion what i had about container. i.e. JBossPortal itself in Portlet container.

But still i m facing problem in running my sample application in JBossPortal
few of my question in
1 what should be url to call portlet application?
is it something like
http://localhost:8080/portal/helloworld

For this and many other issue if i can get JBossPortal sample
application.as they have mentioned in their referencguide ,
it can help me alot.

I tried that link but it is not giving that sample application and if you drill down to that link it want end in any such sample war file.

so now i m looking for that sample application or any simple application which in deployed in JBossPortal and it is in working condition.

if anyone has any such application which is in working condition on JBossPortal
please mail me on

Check out the HelloWorld portlet available on JBoss' PortletSwap.com.

Hopefully that helps to get you started.

Still i need some help from this fourm.

Can anyone help me in this questions?
1 If i use Pluto portlet api to create portlet application and deploy it in Jboss portal 2.0 will it work?[Do i need to ship Pluto portlet container with application]

2 If i can deploy portlet application developed in pluto without keeping pluto portlet container, do i need to add pluto-api jars to lib of Jboss portal?

Question 1)
No, JBoss portal has a portlet container already embedded. Not necessary to add Pluto to it.

Question 2)
It should not be necessary to include the portlet API jars to your portlet application for deployment in JBoss portal, at least it is not necessary for Pluto, IBM, Sun etc. (I do not know JBoss in detail).
But try it out, if I am wrong a ClassNotFoundException will likely appear ...

Greetings, Stefan

Hi

Thank you very much for help.

Now in JBoss Portal i want to add one more portlet to same page.

Can anyone direct me to some tutorial or link or step to perform this?
