I'm new to portals having set up a reference implementation of Pluto last week and dropping a few portlets into it.
I decided it was time to move up to Jetspeed though, and so today downloaded the installer and ran through the process of unpacking the jar and letting ant install.
The portal did start up. Just about all of the war files unpacked and installed, but not j2-admin. When I went to the page I found several portlets with messages like
Failed to retrieve Portlet Definition for j2-admin::LocaleSelectorFailed to retrieve Portlet Definition for j2-admin::LocaleSelectorjava.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot pass a null PortletDefinition to a PortletEntity.Failed to retrieve Portlet Definition for j2-admin::LocaleSelectorFailed to retrieve Portlet Definition for j2-admin::LocaleSelector
I've tried googling around for answers, but there don't seem to be many people running into this exact problem. Questions near to this have been asked on this forum, but with no response. Any chance that someone else is messing around with this right now and happens to know what the problem here is though?

It looks like my problem lay in the fact that the location I was deploying to was full, but not properly displaying it's capacity. In other words, the war file was not deploying because it didn't have the space to do so.
I also installed J2 recently. It seems j2-admin has many portlets but only Locale, ChangePassword, ForgotPassword and UserRegistration are the only ones usable.
Were you able to get others working? How? Or have you decide to use another Portal porduct?

I've been really demoing out a few portal products, but with jetspeed I had just about everything working with it correctly with the exception or the RSS portlet and the perl(if memory serves) example portlet.
This all worked right out of the box when I had fixed the problem mentioned above. I was also able to get my own hello world portlet working and an example of portlet-to-portlet communication with a third party jar.
