When the user views WebSphere® Application Server portlets, they may have the option to configure or edit the portlet, which entails setting values for any configurable or editable properties of the portlet.
For portlets created with WebSphere Portlet Factory, these properties are the profile names and entries declared to be configurable or editable in the WPS Portlet Adapter builder call. The Websphere Portal provides default Configure and Edit functionality, but you can alter the appearance of the Configure and Edit pages for the portlet by specifying an HTML page that you create to be used instead of the default. Also, you can implement your own Configure and Edit functionality by creating WebSphere Portlet Factory models that include an Portlet Customizer builder call.
- Create HTML pages for configure and edit pages if you want to customize the appearance of the configure and edit pages.
- Specify created the filenames of the HTML pages in the WPS Portlet Adapter builder call.
- Specify edit or configure model in WPS Portlet Adapter builder call.
- Create specified model, using Portlet Customizer builder call for the basic functionality.
