Using jMaki widgets in JSR168 portlets

Last update Feb 11, 2007 


Importante note :

To get jMaki widgets up & running into a JSR168 portlet deployed on Open Source Portal Container, you have to get the jMaki plugin release-169 or later for Netbeans 5.5



Since I've started to work on Portal, developing the Portlet GUI part has always been a hot topic and sometime a nightmare for me.

By the way, talking with Ludo and Greg I discovered recently jMaki library.

From https://ajax.dev.java.net/ web site...

jMaki is an Ajax framework that provides a lightweight model for creating JavaScript centric Ajax-enabled web applications using Java. The jMaki project gives you a way to quickly and easily add AJAX-enabled widgets to your web applications. It does this by providing a simple mechanism to wrap a widget as a JSP tag handler or a JavaServer Faces component. Therefore, you can add a widget to your web application in the same way that you add any other JSP tag or JavaServer Faces component.

That's excellent.

After a couple of clicks, you can add some interesting widgets in your JSR168 Portlet deployed within Glassfish/OpenSource portlet container.

One of the most interesting is the table. With this widget, you don't have to code a lot of Java statements to sort the columns....

Here is my current sample....

Patrice, Good post, but you've got some unnecessary HTML in your blog post that looks pretty strange in my news reader. You don't need to include the html, head and body tags inside each blog post. A blog post is supposed to be an HTML fragment and not a complete HTML page. - Dave
