Importing Java Portlet Definitions

The WAR files used for Java portlet definitions must be placed on the server file system in the <PPM_Home>/server/<PPM_Server_Name>/deploy directory.

To import a Java portlet definition using the Import Portlet Definition wizard:

  1. Log on to PPM.

  2. From the menu bar, select Open > Administration > Portlet Definitions > Import Portlet Definition.

    The Choose Portlet Type step of the Import Portlet Definition page appears.

  3. Select Java Portlet - Created according to the Java Portlet specification.

  4. Click Next.

    Note that only one portlet can be selected at a time.

    If no portlet definitions are available (that is, all of the portlet definitions are selected):

    • Click Back to return to the previous page.

    • Click Cancel to stop.

  6. Click Next.
