JSR168 Portlet User-Attributes

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this. If not could someone point me elsewhere.

I have an issue with a JSR168 Portlet that has 3 attributes defined in the <user-attribute> section of the Portlet.xml. I can't find any information on how to set these values.

Can anyone help me out with this?

If they are defined in as Initial Parameters, then you can get them using the getInitParameter() method.

static String LIST_PAGE = "ListPage";
String page = getInitParameter(LIST_PAGE);

portlet.xml excerpt
< !-- example of an init parameter<br /> init parameters should be used if there is configuration<br /> used by ALL instances of the portlet on your server <br /> it should not be used for instance-level parameters<br /> -->



I agree. Here's the link:
