I'm a newbie to both JBoss and portlet. I�ve placed the portlet WAR under the C:\JBoss\server\default\deploy folder. The name of my portal app is "funportal" and I've got 2 portlets viz. SettingsPortlet and ZodiacSignPortlet. My portlet.xml contains the correct data wrt the fully qualified class names.
Hi, In one of the xml file you have to change the default portal name to your portal name . I have done that but I dont remember clearly . Even on the default portal on the left handside portlet one can see there deployed portal OR on the tabs which are provided . It would be better of if one uses eclipse for development.
The problem was caused by the portlet-api-blah-blah.jar libraray in my application. I deleted that file and added the jboss portlet api libraries in JBOSS_HOME\default\deploy\jboss-portal.sar\lib to my ant build script under compile class path.
