Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-2478) ContextForwardServlet should have a registration mechanism
Date Mon, 09 Oct 2006 19:47:19 GMT
ContextForwardServlet should have a registration mechanism

                 Key: GERONIMO-2478
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: console
    Affects Versions: 1.1.1
            Reporter: Aaron Mulder
             Fix For: 1.1.2, 1.2

Currently the ContextForwardServlet must be deployed separately for each URL path to redirect.

This does not work well for plugins, nor will it work well for a more fine-grained console
composed of multiple optional bits of functionality.

Instead, the ContextForwardServlet should listen on a single path (say, /portlet-resources)
and then have a registration mechanism that lets you add sub-mappings dynamically (/portlet-resources/foo/*
-> web app 1 and /portlet-resources/bar/* -> web app 2).  Presumably something where
it has a collection of GBeans and each web app that wants to register some forward with the
console deploys one or more instances of the web app.
