Subject 3rd party integration with the Geronimo web admin console
Date Thu, 12 Jul 2007 19:03:22 GMT
I had a discussion on IRC #geronimo about this, and it was suggested
that I post to the G dev list to continue the discussion:

The Goal:
    To put a GUI front end on a downloadable 3rd party Geronimo plugin,
preferably in the adminstration console where administrative security is
already handled and configuration of components is natural.  As far as I
can gather, right now I would have to have my plugin modify the portlet
configuration files directly and force a console reload on startup for
this to happen, but I have also only been looking at the 1.1 code line
so far.

>From the IRC discussion:
    I chatted briefly with kevan and jgenender about this, and they
suggested that instead of using 1.1 I focus on the 2.0 line since there
was work being done in the area of the administration console.  There
seemed to be some minor discord about where exactly this new code lives
(sandbox vs. trunk) and when exactly it will be released (2.0 or later).

For my part, I'm interested to know what/where this new code is (and
when it will be released is always good too), and what I will need to do
as the plugin writer to integrate my portlet (or something other than a
portlet?) into the new and improved console.

Any help or pointers to the code are much appreciated.

P.S. -- for those interested this is for a plugin for Terracotta
clustering for Geronimo.
