Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-794) List only installed applications that are not part of Geronimo itself

Joe Bohn commented on GERONIMO-794:

Yes, that is what I was thinking we should have.  Customers using an application server on
a daily basis don't often need to manage the components that are delivered as part of the
server itself.   So let's eliminate the clutter and only show them their applications.  My
original recommendation was to split this into two portlets with the one including the system
applications minimized.    However, I think your recommendation of a "filter" is a better
choice.  We can update the current portlets to only display non-system applications by default
and include an action on the glass to "show all" or "show system applications".   This could
act like a toggle that would extend the list to include the system applications or restrict
the list to remove system applications (of course the action name would change to something
like "hide system applications" when they are currently being displayed.

As for the mechanism to filter the set of applications I think that the package name is a
good approach.   We might have to include more than just org.apach.geronimo (to catch things
like OpenEJB) and we might also have to include some org.apach.geronimo packages (such as
samples that we might make available to users).   However I think we will be able to provide
the filtering based upon a set of criteria and not have to resort to "hard coding" any application

an additional portet that by default is minimized on the page.
