Subject Portals Bridges subprojects created, Struts Portlet Framework moved and refactored
Date Thu, 29 Jul 2004 22:36:09 GMT
After the long discussion on this list and the general portals list concerning 
my proposal for Portlet Frameworks the outcome is that we will opt for creating 
a new Portals subproject in which we will host these "frameworks" under the name 

These bridges will use as base package name: org.apache.portals.bridges.
Furthermore, for JSP taglibs the base uri portals.apache.org/bridges/ will be used.
Finally, the maven artifacts created for the bridges will use portals-bridges as 
groupId and portals-bridges-<framework>-<version> as artifactId.

Because the subproject isn't created yet (and first will have to be approved by 
the Portals PMC) the current Struts Portlet Framework (and soon the Perl and PHP 
applications) will for the time being be stored in the J2 cvs repository.

For this, I created a new J2 portals-bridges subfolder to which the current 
Struts Portlet Framework has been moved with as new base package 

The SPI for this framework now is part of the bridges common (maven) subproject 
and renamed from StrutsServletContextProvider to the more generic 

Required changes for anymore building on the now "old" Struts Portlet Framework:
- project.xml:
   dependency change from struts-portlet:struts-portlet-spi-0.1.jar to
   dependency change from struts-portlet:struts-portlet-0.1.jar to
- web.xml:
   action servlet class change from org.apache.struts.portlet.StrutsServlet to
- portlet.xml:
   portlet class change from org.apache.struts.portlet.StrutsPortlet to
   portlet init parameter ServletContextProvider value change (for J2 users) from
     org.apache.jetspeed.portlet.StrutsServletContextProviderImpl to

     Note: for non J2 users using a different Impl class please not it now has to
     implement org.apache.portals.bridges.common.ServletContextProvider instead
     of org.apache.struts.portlet.StrutsServletContextProvider
- JSP:
   struts-portlet taglib uri reference change from
     http://struts.apache.org/tags-portlet to

I've update all references in J2 accordingly.

Finally, I've moved the struts demo application under the applications folder in J2.

Once the new Portals subproject is created the bridges now stored in the J2 cvs 
will be moved to there.
