Subject Re: Jetty/Tomcat check in the console
Date Wed, 31 Aug 2005 23:15:10 GMT
	I'm not terribly happy with the way the Tomcat/Jetty check was 
done (looking for "Tomcat" or "Jetty" in the names of any interfaces the 
thing implements, IIRC), so I'm a little hesitant to spread the use, but I 
guess better that we do it in one place rather than have separate versions 
of that check in separate modules.

	You can just promote the check from BaseWebPortlet to BasePortlet, 
I'd say, and make sure the method name indicates that it's for web usage 
(not just "getComponentType" or something -- I don't have the code in 
front of me at the moment).
