I am trying to add a portlet to Pluto 1.1.3. I have modified the pluto-portal-driver-config.xml file to add a page and web-app to pluto. This new web application is a simple jsp. I have added JSF Configuration (MyFaces) to the application in hopes to use JSF as the next step in my development effort. I have added the jar files for MyFaces to the /common/lib. This has got me through many of the class not found exceptions.

Next I startup Pluto/Tomcat. I have gone to the Tomcat Manager, I see the portlet is running. Next, I click on the "Test Portlet" Page from the navigation pulldown menu from pluto, I get the following error:

at org.apache.pluto.internal.impl.PortletRequestDispatcherImpl.include(

Caused by: org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Failed to load or instantiate TagExtraInfo class: org.apache.jetspeed.portletcontainer.tags.InitTag$TEI
at org.apache.jasper.compiler.DefaultErrorHandler.jspError(

I think I have everything configured properly. I've searched this form and I do not see such a question. Can some shed some light on this issue?

Thank you for taking the time to read my post.

I agree. Here's the link:
