How to do I18n and L10n in WebSynergy

Recently we have defined a common way to do I18n and L10n in WebSynergy. This process will be used for I18n/L10n during development of WebSynergy. It can also be used to develop new porlet with taking advantage of existing UI Tag lib and Language util class for I18n/L10n.

Details can be found on my personal blog entry .

WSRP version 2.0 milestone 1 binary now available

The Open Portal WSRP Project has recently released the milestone 1 binary of WSRP version 2.0 implementation. The same is available for download here. Here is the link to the install and user guide for this milestone.
  1. Install Instructions
  2. User Guide
The WSRP version 2.0 milestone 1 release is the first release from the OpenPortal WSRP Project that implements the OASIS WSRP version 2.0 specification. The main intent of this release is to provide a base platform for developers to build optional and additional features that are defined in the WSRP version 2.0 specification and demonstrate to WSRP users the basic usecases of using both the versions.

Technically since all the major features of the WSRP version 2.0 specification are defined optional, we already have a WSRP version 2.0 implementation, by just porting the version 1.0 implementation to 2.0 schema's and claim version 2.0 compliance. However to have a meaningful version 2.0 implementation, the optional features are required to be implemented. The OpenPortal WSRP Project addresses/implements these optional features in the subsequent milestone. Please check the WSRP version 2.0 Project page for more details.

So what exactly is there in this release ?
  1. Provides a base v2 implementation by porting v1 implementation to v2 schema's.
  2. Provides both version 2.0 and version 1.0 WSRP Producer implementation.
  3. Supports sharing of resources like registration-handle/portlet-handle across v1 and v2 WSRP Producer services.
  4. Provides both version 1.0 and 2.0 implementation of Consumer.
  5. Provides the necessary administrative interface to create a v1 or v2 Consumer.
  6. Supports backward compatibility by supporting both v1 and v2 stacks.

Note : The code base uses OASIS WSRP public review 04 schema to demonstrate the above

Stay tuned for future announcements on optional feature implementation, Please subscribe to  announce@wsrp.dev.java.net

OpenPortal @ FOSS- 1st Day

From Left : Vihang, Deepak, Ganesh, Sandeep, Mahipal

 OpenPortal campaign @ Foss.IN's first day started with a bang at Bangalore. It was very well
received by the developer community. The BoF sessions were a hit which is evident from the fact that 2-3 BoF sessions needed to be conducted parallely.
OpenPortal team also gave a handout of all community projects under the OpenPortal umbrella. It also made a well-crafted survey received eagerly by the developer community. On the first day itself, we were able to collect around 80-90 responses.

Sandeep explaining portal fundas.The survey responses were very positive and almost everyone had something or the other to look forward to from Portal and wanted to at the least become an observer.

 BoF's gave a wonderful way of interacting with the community.

 

Vihang explaing about portal and collecting the surveysThe enthusiasm received re-affirms the fact that the developer community and the market in general has been awaiting a cutting-edge Enterprise level OpenSource Portal Server.

Now FOSS.IN moves to penultimate day where we are trying our best to maintain the momentum.

Developing JSF Portlets with NetBeans Visual Web Pack & Portal Pack Plug-in

The NetBeans Visual Web Pack helps developers create JSF based web application using drag and drop support for JavaServer Faces components. The current version of Visual Web Pack doesn't have support for JSF based Portlet Applications. Most probably this functionality will be addressed in the future version of Visual Web Pack. But many users who have been migrating from Sun Studio Creator to NetBeans 6.0 are asking about this feature in various forums. So I spent some time to find out if it's possible to build JSF Portlet with the current version of Visual Web Pack and Portal Pack plug-in.

With a few manual steps you can actually get JSF Portlet Builder functionality using NetBeans Visual Web Pack and Portal Pack Plug-in togather. For more details read here
