Hi guys,

i am working on a Portal application in my compnay and i use Jetspeed 2.0 , Apache Tomcat 5.5.12 and JDK1.5 . I am stuck , 'coz of a problem. And i need to fix it by this tommorow ...Guys !.... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE !!! HELP ME !!! PLEASE !!!

The problem is :-

The Portal contains many portlets which contain JSF applications. I have created a Simple JSP(...not JSF !) application of few pages . The application works well, if run standalone, that is not on portlet but simply as http://localhost:8080/arrk-foundation .....where in arrk-foundation is the name of my application. Now i have created a Portlet.xml , and web.xml and registered the portlet on the Jetspeed's .psml page so that it will be renderend when the portal is run as :- http://localhost:8080/Portal ... but the PORTLET IS NOT DISPLAYED ! The Jetspeed Says that cannot pass null Portlet entity !

Omkar Patkar!

Thanks and Regards

You mention that you run ok stand-alone? Are you running in a Portal Server (Pluto) when you run stand-alone? If you are just running a regular WEB-CONTEXT JSF application in a Servlet-container and attempting to move this same application to the Portal-Server then you get NULL errors as you described. You either need to reference this existing application externally via your Portal Software IFRAME, install a custom Bridge to allow JSF applications to work in your Portal software, or modify your application to take advance of the JSR-168 specification in the code?

Hope this helps
I agree. Here's the link:
