Project Mirage on WebSynergy

    With the announcement of Project WebSynergy, the new web presentation platform for internet and enterprise applications, the excitement is palpable :) The erstwhile portals, will look and feel and more importantly, think (yes think, just wait for Web 3.0 :) ) and act, much better now.

    The solution for aggregation and presentation might have been improved with Project WebSynergy, but most of the requirements still remain the same. And one of the main requirements has always been for a good Content Management System (CMS). Project Mirage fulfills this need for Project WebSynergy by providing an Open source CMS built on top of a JSR-170 implementation. This provides portlets which can be deployed on WebSynergy to utilize the CMS functionalities. This screencast tries to showcase a few of the features present.

    As of now, things are looking bright :) So download the zip file and try it out. Let us know what you feel about it.

    Please feel free to send any feedback on Project Mirage to users@mirage.dev.java.net

Comments:

where is the zip file you mention?

the screencast depicts websynergy admin user sunspace tab as having the cms related portlets - in my windows and ubuntu installs neither has any cms portlets loaded or instantiated, be they mirage or liferay journal.

??

i hope there's an easy answer to this, because i'm very excited to be exploring websynergy...

Hi,
Due to licensing issues we couldn't bundle the cms portlets in the Project WebSynergy distribution. The screencast was of the JavaONE demo that was displayed in the pod.
You can however get the Project Mirage working on Project WebSynergy by following the installation instructions on the Project Mirage site at https://mirage.dev.java.net/install.html. Also please note that the default distribution of Project WebSynergy comes with Glassfish v3, so please configure it on Glassfish v2 (this shouldn't be a problem :) ) as the above installation instructions require you to create a JNDI resource, the support for which is not yet provided by Glassfish V3. Hope this helps.
