Subject Re: [J2] New PAM/Deployer
Date Wed, 02 Feb 2005 21:50:39 GMT
Seems to be working for me.  However, I had to modify the redploy() 
method in FilSystemPAM as such:

            // It might be the case were things have become 
unsynchronized and the target app for redploy
            // actully needs the full deploy treatment. 
                doUnregister(paWar.getPortletApplicationName(), false);
                String paName = paWar.getPortletApplicationName();
                DirectoryHelper deployedDir = new DirectoryHelper(new 
File(webAppsDir + "/" + paName));
                PortletApplicationWar existingWar = new 
PortletApplicationWar(deployedDir, paName, "/" + paName);

                sysDeploy(paWar, DEPLOY_WAR);

reason being that it appears that if an app is deployed in the app 
server but not in jetspeed, the app is never registered to jetspeed.  I 
added a simple check that if we were  trying to redeploy an app that 
exists in the container but not in jetspeed we just do a full deploy 

Does this make sense?  I was having issues redploying my custom portal 
that uses the "pam" app for the LocaleSelector however, the deployment 
of the portal DOES NOT remove the pam app from tomcat, hence the issue I 
have outlined above rearing its head.  Adding the above logic seemed to 
fix this for me.
