I have come from an extensive WebSphere App Server / Portal Server background into a project which is using Widgets / Mashup Center 126.96.36.199 and Web Experience Factory 188.8.131.52, and consequently being new to it and coming to terms with the concepts etc., I am trying to understand how the solution being developed will be deployed across multiple environments. So I have some questions:
- I understand that you can build the widget WAR files with the provided .deployment/portletwar.xml ant build file, but then is it possible to deploy this war file (using a Jython script) and 'register' the widgets with Mashup Center, or whatever the equivalent is in there?
- How do I script the creation of Spaces / Pages, installing widgets, wiring them together, setting permissions, etc.? i.e., is there an equivalent of xmlaccess for Mashup Center?
- Is there an equivalent of cross-page-wiring in Mashup Center?
I haven't found much in the Mashup Center Wiki or InfoCenter in these areas, so if anyone can point me in to stuff that might help, or tell me how it is done, that would be much appreciated. Apologies if I'm confused on how some of the concepts work for Widgets.
Thanks in advance for any help,
