Subject [jira] Resolved: (JS2-611) Custom Portlet Mode and Window State incorrectly handled / processed from portlet.xml
Date Wed, 15 Nov 2006 13:39:41 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-611?page=all ]

Ate Douma resolved JS2-611.

    Resolution: Fixed

I've implemented a fix for this which temporarily provides backwards compatibility still allowing
allowing both the old but incorrect custom-portlet-mode/name or custom-window-state/name definitions
as well the correct custom-portlet-mode/portlet-mode and custom-window-state/window-state
As soon as we provide portlet.xml xsd validation though the old definitions *will* break portlet-application

>             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:
>   <custom-portlet-mode>
>     <description>optional description</description>
>     <name>sample-mode</name>
>   </custom-portlet-mode>
>   <custom-window-state>
>     <description>optional description</description>
>     <name>sample-state</name>
>   </custom-window-state>
> But, the xsd requires them to be defined like:
>   <custom-portlet-mode>
>     <description>optional description</description>
>     <portlet-mode>sample-mode</portlet-mode>
>   </custom-portlet-mode>
>   <custom-window-state>
>     <description>optional description</description>
>     <window-state>sample-state</window-state>
>   </custom-window-state>
> 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 ***
