This issue adds two new features:
1. Production Configuration via an external configuration file
This configuration file allows administrators to change production configuration properties
outside of the portal without moving the entire assembly directory out of the portal
see jetspeed-production.properties and jetspeed-production.xml
2. Hard-code base URL
Allows the Base URL to be hard-coded by a system administrator
Base URLs contain the isSecure flag, server name, server port, and server scheme.
This abstraction was necessary for wiring the entire portal's base URL via another
mechanism than retrieving from the servlet request.
Both of these features are turned OFF by default.
To enable them, see portal-url-generation.xml
