Subject Re: Portlet.getID() returning NULL
Date Mon, 13 May 2002 01:02:45 GMT
I have backed off from attempting to cleanup the whole PortletConfig - 
Portlet API issue at this time.  Instead, I found the problem with the 
portlet ID and fixed it.

I am also going to make sure that velocity portlets include the portlet 
id in the cache handle, so that the cache can distinguish between 
different portlet instances in the cache, since that's really what we 
are caching.   Because the PortletConfig (and other info) is part of the 
Portlet API and that is what is cached, the cached object contains 
information specific to an Entry of a particular portal page (thus 
making it a Portlet Instance, sort of). There will be a new 
AbstractPortlet extension to handle this for other portlets if anyone 
wishes to cache more precisely.
