Comments:

Jim, I noticed that sun listed patch 121465-28 as an what seems to upgrade of 7.0 to 7.1. Is there an upgrade path between the 2, or is it a wipe clean situation? Perhaps does JES5 have an upgrade feature (I noticed this referred to in some of the bugs fixed within this patch).

There is upgrade information here: http://docs.sun.com/source/819-6553/portalSvr.html

Thanks for the heads up Jim, this is exactly what our Solaris admin was looking for. Just out of curiosity, how would I have come across this doc (or similar docs) if not here? I saw the upgrade guide mentioned in the patch README yesterday, but that is the only link or reference to this guide I have currently found.

I typically use google to search our own docs site. This search is how I found the information you are looking for:

Jim, the enterprise sample portal in Portal 7.1 Update 1 does not work through SRA Gateway. The error message received is something about dojo toolkit error. This sounds like an URL rewriter issue with the AJAX code in the sample. Have you seen and/or solved this?

Check out Leroy's blog: http://blogs.sun.com/leroyk/entry/sra_and_ajax_portal

Jim, the change on Leroy's blog doesn't fix the problem. Any other ideas? Does Sun have the ajax'ed portal sample running in a demo lab somewhere that is publicly accessible via the SRA GW?
