Subject [jira] Created: (JS2-611) Custom Portlet Mode and Window State incorrectly handled / processed from portlet.xml

Custom Portlet Mode and Window State incorrectly handled / processed from portlet.xml 

                 Key: JS2-611
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-611
             Project: Jetspeed 2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Container
    Affects Versions: 2.1-dev
            Reporter: Ate Douma
         Assigned To: Ate Douma
             Fix For: 2.1, 2.1-dev

The definition Jetspeed expects in portlet.xml for declaring a custom-portlet-mode and custom-window-state
is not according to the official portlet 1.0 descriptor xsd.

Currently, for Jetspeed to recognize custom-portlet-mode or custom-window-state definitions,
you have to define them like:

    <description>optional description</description>

    <description>optional description</description>

But, the xsd requires them to be defined like:

    <description>optional description</description>

    <description>optional description</description>

As defense for this invalid handling, I like to point out that the Portlet Specification 1.0
documentation contains examples with the same mistake.
(I actually implemented this in Jetspeed looking at those examples, not the xsd itself. My
bad ;) )

I'm going to fix this ASAP, and we will probably (very soon) add portlet.xml xsd validation
too, so to not make these type of mistakes again.

Only the demo portlet application provided by Jetspeed currently uses a custom-window-state,
and I will fix that one too of course.

*** WARNING: fixing this *will* break  deployment of custom portlet applications in Jetspeed
which also use this invalid definition ***
