Problem Description:

I have created a portal which contains various pages containing different portlets. Each portlet corresponds to a different JSP page. The desktop has got the title: New Portal Desktop.

While I run through the application, the title of the explorer window remains that of the desktop i.e. New Portal Desktop. Every page has the same title in the explorer window.


As we traverse through different pages, the title should change as per the page. For instance; sample.jsp should have the title Sample Application and so on.

Possible Solution:

I tried to do the following in the begin action of login:

DesktopBackingContext dbctx = DesktopBackingContext.getDesktopBackingContext(getRequest());

dbctx.setTitle("Sample Application");

But this doesn�t change the title of the explorer window. Can anyone suggest what can be done to resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance.
