Subject [jira] [Commented] (GERONIMO-6129) Improvements for Admin Console navigation

Rex Wang commented on GERONIMO-6129:
------------------------------------

I think this feature really need more discussion.
So far, I see 3 issues of the improvements:
1. Do we really need centralized configuration file?
Because such pages and their categories won't always change, from my point of view, we don't
need provide a central page to define it. As you said, if a user add its console plugin to
geronimo, he have to also manually maintain the pages.xml. And it is not the way we design
a plugin originally.

2. User based navigation tree
I agree this is useful. However, I think we should implement this in a different way, that
is, only the "system" can configure "which user can access which page.", And then we need
store it in a place only the system user can edit, which is instead of a xml file that anyone
could edit it.
In a word, we need add a portlet, in which super user "system" can edit which page a user
can access and then store it in a "secure" place.

3. Basic mode customize.
A user can define which pages he want to appear in the basic mode, which considered as a shortcut.
This information can be recorded in a xml file, like the "basic" part in user-pages.xml. We
also should add a portlet to let user can edit this.

> Make 2 improvements for Admin Console navigation:
> 1) Centralized configuration file for portlet category
>    The portlet category is hard-coded in the gbean attribute 'pageTitle' in 'plan.xml'
of each portlet in current implementation. It makes the category configuration distributed
in multiple files which are hard to maintain.
>    This improvement targets to keep only title in 'pageTitle' and provide a centralized
configuration file for portlet category. It also enables runtime configuration.
> 2) User based navigation tree
>    This improvement is a part of [GERONIMO-5675|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-5675].
But it provides more flexible configuration which makes the basic tree and the advanced tree
can be customized independently.
