Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1900) Sample app links on welcome app are broken by default
Date Thu, 04 May 2006 04:32:18 GMT

Aaron Mulder commented on GERONIMO-1900:

I agree with Dave's analysis.

Also, I don't like the fact that the patch has a hardcoded port in the redirect URL, or that
it wasn't made from the Geronimo root directory.

I think we should forget about the console and if the user opts to install the plugin, just
load up the plugin installer and do the install right then and there and then redirect the
user to the example page.

> It would be nice to take users to a page that would prompt them to install the sample
if they click a link to it and it's not present. However, automating this would require us
to be able to construct a link into a portlet, which does not seem easy. 
> For now, the welcome app can include pages at the locations where the sample apps will
be bound, with text to the effect of: 
> This sample has not yet been installed. To install it, visit the (URL)console(/URL) and
select the Plugins page, click the Search for Plugins button, and select the (NAME HERE) sample
to install. Then visit this same URL again to view the (NAME HERE) example.
