Can i use popups in jsr 168 portlets.I am trying to open a jsp running in an application server as pop up from a portlet application.Pop up is working fine fine and i am able to set values from popup to parent portlet jsp.But wen i submit the portlet jsp i am losing track of the current state.What can be done for that?I am able to get parameters using request.getParameter()

What Portal server are you using? I am using Oracle Portal 10.1.4 ? JSR -168. I was told it won't work but i am trying to test! If I get any I will let you know!
Good luck

When you do figure it out, start trying to figure out how to turn your clients pop-up blocker off.

It's 2007, almost 2008. Nobody should be designing a site that throws pop-ups at the client. And if you do, you better have VERY sophisticated users, or else your help desk will be handling call after call from clients who don't know how to turn their pop-up blocker off.

Use an AJAX call to the JSP, and wrap that up in a portlet that leverages AJAX.

Sorry to get preachy, but pop-up windows are a waste of everyone's time.

Thanks for the immediate response.Yeah its not ideal to use pop ups.But ours is an intranet application and limited number of users will be accessing the page.The issue is not because the pop up blocker is turned on.I am able to get the pop up with values displayed and i am setting it back in portal jsp.But wen i submit the portal jsp the state gets expired.i am not able to get values from portal jsp using request.getParamter().

I am using websphere portal server 6.0

I have installed the pop up application in websphere application server on the top of whcih i have installed the portal server.

i am calling the pop up from the porltet jsp as shown below

window.open("http://10.10.88.180:10000/LOVSearchWeb/Search.jsp?strDispCols="+escape(strDispCols)+"&strParam="+strParam+"&vPreSelect="+escape(vPreSelect)+"&sTableName=ADB_PUBLICATION_LOV","SearchPage","menubar=0,statusbar=1,resizable=0,width=650,height=500,scrollbars=1");

is there any possible way i can maintain the state of parent portal page???

Perhaps you could send the information to another portlet on the page that is hidden. After the hidden portlet receives the information, you can do whatever you need to do with it, then pop up the resulting page through JavaScript from PortletB not from PortletA.


PortletA --> wire --> PortletB ---> action ---> jsp ---> JavaScript popup
