Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-1318) HTTP redirects for the geronimo.apache.org site
Date Fri, 09 Dec 2005 21:45:10 GMT
HTTP redirects for the geronimo.apache.org site
-----------------------------------------------

         Key: GERONIMO-1318
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-1318
     Project: Geronimo
        Type: Improvement
  Components: console  
    Versions: 1.0    
    Reporter: Paul McMahan


The welcome application and the welcome portlet currently contain links to web pages outside
of the geronimo.apache.org web site (e.g. the docs in Confluence).  Since the destination
of these links is outside of our control they may go stale during the lifetime of the 1.0
console.  So instead of linking to those web pages directly the welcome application and welcome
portlet should instead link to web pages on the geronimo.apache.org web site.  The geronimo.apache.org
web site can then redirect the browser to the external address if necessary.  This will allow
us to change where the links in the welcome portlet and welcome app take a web browser without
actually changing the installed geronimo server.

Ideally we could configure the geronimo.apache.org HTTP server to issue the redirects.  But
since that requires administrative access to the HTTP server we can use html files containing
a <meta http-equiv="refresh" ...> tag instead.
