Subject Cocoon as a JSR-168 portlet
Date Tue, 11 Aug 2009 11:09:46 GMT
Hi gents,
I have been recently playing with Cocoon 2.1 in a JSR-168 portlet  
environment; here it follows my experience.

I started from the wiki page at [1]: rather good, even though quite  
bound to pluto 1.0. I could easily adapt the procedure to Open Portlet  
Container [2] and Sun Portal Server; unfortunately, when it comes to  
CForms, the only pointer is [3], very out of date nowadays.

The main issue in CForms is related to the fact that also [2] points  
out: Portlet's ActionRequest can not have any response body. After  
some struggling, I found the solution by modifying Form.js'  
sendFormAndWait() to be able to cope with the former issue.
Another smaller issue is related to resources URI (for CSS and JS)  
that must be adapted and rewritten by the LinkRewriter in order to be  

A couple of improvements that I also needed are:
a mean to access to portlet preferences (I've developed a simple  
Action for this purpose)
a mean to access to cookies (as already proposed in [4])

If this can be of any interest, please let me know and I will be happy  
to share my code.
