Subject [jira] [Commented] (GERONIMO-6129) Improvements for Admin Console navigation
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2011 02:54:38 GMT


Shenghao Fang commented on GERONIMO-6129:

Hi Ivan,

I suppose that we would provide default configuration pages.xml and user-page.xml. All pages
will be included in pages.xml and will be filtered by the list of registered portlets. So
it will not be an issue if a user only installs some of the portlests and installs others

I'm not sure whether we have the scenario that we would provide new portlets which are not
included in the major release of current version. If such scenario exists, it does needs to
be considered.

Another choice is that we can provide all the access to the system user by default by hard-coding
instead of by user-pages.xml.

> 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|].
But it provides more flexible configuration which makes the basic tree and the advanced tree
can be customized independently.
