Does J2 store PSML info etc in the database by default, if not, is it 
possible. Using J1.6 I have made numerous attempts to get database 
storage working using Oracle but with no success, any assistance on that 
one appreciated.

Is this possible using an admin portlet or is this added by hand ? Our 
users are given the flexibility to arrange their portal as they see fit 
for their purpose, the interface has to be inuitive, if they can't 
achieve something simple then acceptance of the portal is far harder to 
achieve !
