Subject RE: deploy MyFaces as portlet into Websphere Portal 5.1
Date Tue, 18 Jul 2006 13:59:41 GMT
Is that true? Does MyFaces really require JSP 2.0? Does JSF itself
require it?

I can deploy my application to pluto 1.0.1 without a problem
I suspect the reason is due to JSP version, as websphere portal 5.1.0.1
<http://5.1.0.1/>  is using JSP 1.3, and myFaces needs JSP 2.0.
Is there any way to hack the portal to JSP 2.0?

Hi Wynn,

   Do you have a simple WAR that can be run inside websphere portal?
   Or I mail you my WAR file to check whether mine is workable?

Best Regards,


Bruce

Did that fix your problem or are you still seeing a blank portlet page?
