Subject Re: How about a Certification Authority (CA) portlet in Geronimo Console?
Date Sat, 16 Sep 2006 02:34:46 GMT
You can deploy new portlets as WARs.  But in order for the portal to
include them, you have to use the hacky GBean that updates the portal
config files, and then either hit a hand-crafted URL or restart the
server to make the console notice.  The main problem is that the
console isn't very happy if you later remove said WARs, though I
haven't looked into that problem in detail.  The latest version of
Pluto should eliminate most of these problems, though we still need to
think of some way to provide a hook to take action when the WAR is
uninstalled.

Anyway, I think a CA portlet would be cool.

Thanks,
