Hello I am trying my hand at writing Portlets using the RAD and Portal Test Envoirnment.I am following the instructions given on the RedBook.But Unfortunately I am unable to run a very simple portlet on the Portal Test envoirnment.I am encountering a error when I am trying to run it ...This is the message(on the portal screen) I get when I click on the Portlet
"This portlet is unavailable. If the problem persists, please contact the portal administrator"
Is there something which I should do to get the portlet working
I'd say there was something wrong with your portlet. If the environment says it can't find anything to deploy, it usually means the environment is good, but going from IRAD to the environment is the problem.
Take a look at my tutorial on creating JSR-168 Portlets with IRAD. It might give you an idea.
