You can create your own SegmentList implementation so that you can associate profiles with segments of your own type in the profile manager.
IBM® WebSphere® Portlet Factory includes sample implementations of the following alternate segment types:
File-based User/Profile Association
Used with the File Segment ListJ2EERole
Used with the J2EE Role Selection HandlerLDAP Group
Used with the LDAP Group Handler
All SegmentList implementations return an Iterator to a list of available segments. When you open the Advanced
pull-down menu on the New Profile
or Edit Profile
dialog, it displays the list of available segments.
See the getSegments() methods in the source code for the FileSegmentSelectionHandler
and the LDAPGroupHandler
classes. You can find the Java source for these classes in the WEB-INF/work/selectionhandlers.zip
