What's sad is it took me 16 days to figure out that I had a syntax error.

actionURL ! actionUrl

as for the second problem I have a decent idea.

Ok this is getting quite annoying, I am doing:



And getting:

Unable to locate tagfile for tag actionUrl

nothing wrong with defineObjects etc, and when I try to go the route of:



I get:
The method createActionURL() is undefined for the type HttpServletResponse

Any ideas?

I'm running WebSphere Portal Server 6.1 and just doing a verrrry simple JSR 168 (no framework) portlet.

I have an application that needs to load the response header with values, being so I have to contact an HttpServlet and I'm passing the values in the post to the servlet. Some of the information can be considered protected information (like a username) and I really do not want those in a redirect.

What I've tried is:
(portlet)
prequest.setAttribute("tamCredential", tamCredential);
prequest.setAttribute("redirURL", redirURL);
prequest.getPortletSession().getPortletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/WebSealConversion").include(prequest, presponse);

but nothing happens, any idea why?

Thanks!

Is there anyway to give a portlet a local CSS file or import an image? Typically this would be handled by the theme; but say I want to just package up a portlet and share it between different portals this would be difficult.

I've tried simple things like <img src="images/image.jpg"/> and <img src="/web-inf/jsps/images/image.jpg"/> (I've also tried tons of variation on this).

Any ideas?!

Thanks

What development environment (portlet factory or rad or neither?)
and
What kind of portlets do you plan on making? JSR 168, 286, or Websphere portlet factory portlets.

where is "this(content)" located? on the page, in a js file imported? What's the parent page?

RAD isn't free though . Well for something incredibly easy (no programming required!) check out Websphere Portlet Factory. Though to make just a JSR 168 compilant portlet all you have to do is make a class that extends Generic portlet and overloads doView. (that's just the basics though~)

First, I'm going to pose a few questions; why are you forwarding from one JSP to another instead of JSP to Servlet or just posting a form that sends data to the servlet.

Secondly, how is the forward being called? Is it with an ajax script (like by DWR) if so, add the window popup to the callback function.

JSP
While this might not be the answer you are looking for. I am running WPS in eclipse with Websphere Portlet Factory (not RAD) so if the requirement is demanding you have RAD it's wrong. But you may still be required to have an IBM product.

Keep this in mind also, you can run Portal Server contained inside of WAS without having any other IBM suite of products installed.

You can so long as you are licensed to. IBM Leases their licenses on a "per mip requirement" where they don't care where you installed it, so long as the total processors running doesn't go over there count.

Another thing to consider is there free server the WAS CE with a Portal tie in. (On it's own server that you all just use, so your license agreements work out).

Struts and Spring are two totally independent frameworks (struts is mostly frontend crap, while spring is everything; the swiss army knife of frameworks). One thing you might do with Spring may not even cover what can be done with Struts. So if you have a personal preference to passing things forward with the struts framework then go with both.

I've worked with Weblogic Portal for 2 years now and I've fallen in love with the really user friendly page building and portlet builder. Is there an Opensource version of this for creating JSR-168 (or 286) compliant pages? The webui in Websphere and JBoss Portal are terrible.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
