      Description

      I have started working on Apache Jetspeed2 portal recently. My goal is to move JSR 168 portlets which were devloped using IBM RAD6 to Jetspeed2 portal.
      Many of these portlets have an additional custom mode for admin purpose. I am not able to add this custom mode on Jetspeed2.

      I have signed up for the jetspeed user-mailing list and I came to know that adding custom mode is not supported at present. It will require code changes to implement. I am not pretty sure about it though.

      If this is indeed the case, then I would like to raise it here so that it can be fixed as early as possible. Its very important as many portlets do need a custom mode (like config) for administrative purpose. It should allow a person with admin rights to configure some values that will be visible to all the users.

        Custom portlet modes and window states can now be added.
        See for further information: JS2-523 and JS2-524

        I am sure this will come up again for other people trying to port existing JSR-168 portlets. Different portal implementors have come up with custom modes as a way to provide useful idioms and to create some degree of product lock in.

        After talking with DST, it seems that we might want to provide a way for users to define their own custom modes via some configuration options rather than simply adding modes that match every legacy portal solution we run across.
