Re: Leveraging POC url resolver in WebSphere Portal

Hi Jerry,

Sorry for late follow up.. this should work fine regardless of the portlet MVC framework you use, you get the parameters as regular request params in portlet request.

I can't hide that I'm not a fan of JSF specially with portlets, mainly because it overrides the default lifecycle of portlets (render/action separation) and it enforces the regular 1 phase web approach on it which results in a deformed portlet, neither a portlet nor a servlet and it caused me many many issues in the past. I however am a big fan of spring which seems to work perfectly in portlets and give you all the MVC flexibility you need while keeping the 2 phase design approach intact. This was just a side note :)
