This plugin helps to rollback the content items of the published project.IBM WebSphere Portal V8 gives the capability to group changes into a project and publish the project as a single unit . Rollback of projects is more complex and has to deal with lot of components like Portal pages , content items , Authoring and Presentation templates , WCM Components etc.. . But as a first step I want to show how you can rollback the content items inside the project. At this point I have this working for rolling back content items in all the project that are in published state .you have a Projects Display portlet that display the project in published state , authors and published date and Project Contents Portlets that shows the content of the selected project. The project contests will display the content name , current version ,author details and dropdown of previous version. You can select the version that you want to revert to and clicking the restore will restore the content to selected version. For the scope of POC I want to keep it simple and just restore the WCM content and Portal Page without considering the security and workflow .For now it works with WCM content and restores the content to selected version in published state. With little efforts you can make it go through workflow aswell.Here is a short video of how this plugin works . Let me know if anyone needs the code . I will post it soon ..
