             Summary: Autodeploy W3C widgets into Rave as they are imported in Wookie
                 Key: RAVE-789
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RAVE-789
             Project: Rave
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: rave-web
    Affects Versions: 0.15
         Environment: N/A
            Reporter: Paul Sharples
            Assignee: Paul Sharples
            Priority: Minor

I have a requirement from the omelette project. When a widget is imported into wookie, the
same widget would also be made available in Rave without the need for further administration/approval.

The idea is...

1 A user imports a new W3C widget into Wookie.
2 Wookie then fires a POST event to a new service in Rave (sending the identifier of the new
widget along with it)
3 If this service/feature is enabled in portal.properties (do 4 & 5), otherwise reject
the request
4 Rave uses the new service to first get the metadata and do the usual checks on the widget
(queries Wookie using the widget identifier)
5 Rave imports the W3C widget from Wookie and makes it available

To be able to add a new widget to Rave, there must be a User object available with [ROLE_USER]
permissions. Because this is a request from another application, I propose to create a "System"
user account on the fly, which would be then revoked once the request has completed.  This
feature would be disabled by default in portal.properties. The "System" user id would also
be defined in portal.properties.
