I am evaluating the portletbridge portlet from Unfortunately, it looks like there is quite few document for the configuration and the setup. Is there anyone who has experience of this? Please help me solve the following problem.

Scenario :
I can wrap an web application in a portlet using portletbridge, and the web application is currently being hosted in the other machine with different ip address. The first page of the web application in the portlet looks fine. However, when I get into the second page, I found there are missing links in the page with the following error message in the portal log file.

I am using JBOSS Portal 2.6.1, JBOSS AS 4.0.5

Error Message in the log file :
ERROR [STDERR] (Location of error unknown)java.lang.IllegalArgumentException

Please help

Are you using a framework like JSF or Struts, or is it just plain and simple Servlets and JSPs?

Hi cameron,

Thanks for your reply. Actually, we already have an JSF application in place running in a JBOSS server machine. In other JBOSS portal server machine, we would like to develop a portlet to clip the application using Portlet bridge.

I know there is JSF portal bridge and Struts portal bridge, but those things are not we are looking for. It is because those portal bridge frameworks need to modify the JSF/Struts application itself, e.g. add portlet.xml, remove all the <html>, <body>, <head>. We don't want to modify the current application.
The good thing of portlet bridge is that we don't need to modify the existing application becasue there is xsl file to truncate all those <html>/<body/<head>. The idea is excellent. However, there is quite few documentation in the site and even a forum.

If you know how to work on it, please let me know.

I agree. Here's the link:
