Subject Re: [PATCH] Root portlet set's skin not recognized by children
Date Fri, 03 Jan 2003 19:36:21 GMT
Sounds very good to me. I think the new methods are a better approach. I 
look forward to trying out your new patch. Thank you for your effort and 
  consideration. Please update bug 14909 when you apply your patch, 
since David was planning to work on this after Jan. 6. I think David 
will be happy too.

pass the 4 test cases provided.  However, my new solution does.  The only thing that might
stop it from being committed is the fact that I had to add 2 methods to the Portlets interface
and in turn to the PsmlPortlets class: 
> Portlets getParentPortlets();
> void setParentPortlets(Portlets portlets);

a simple recursive look-up can be performed to locate the proper skin or use the system default
if no skins are defined.

not very invasive as the only class that really needed to implement the 2 methods was PsmlPortlets.
