Subject A new portlet was added to the Gems project
Date Wed, 22 Dec 2004 22:34:33 GMT
The first edition of the ImageViewer Portlet was added to the Gems 
project this week. This portlet allows the user to store images in a 
folder named "images" on the server. At runtime, the end-user can 
specify an image name, and the image is retrieved using an |<img>| tag 
within the JSP page of the view.

The portlet also provides an "Edit" mode that allows the end-user to 
select a different color for the background. Although, this portlet 
provides a very simple implementation , it provides many of the JSR-168 
features and shows how they can be used in a realistic and functional 

The portlet can currently be built using Ant to provide a JSR-168 
compliant portlet.

Furthermore, the folder and file structure follow the recommended 
project structure. Thus, this portlet provides a good template for 
building other portlets in the future.

Later next week, a maven.xml file will be provided to allow user of this 
portlet to build the portlet using Maven. Once a good amount of portlets 
are added to the project, binary editions may become available.

Currently, the portlet downloads with a pluto-web.xml file, which is 
changable via the build.properties. Later, more web.xml files will 
become available for using this portlet on other platforms.

The code can be downloaded from the Gems project at http://gems.dev.java.net
