Subject RE: Jakarta Newsletter - Request For Content
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2002 15:55:33 GMT
Hi Rob,

Jetspeed did not put out a release in August. The current version is in the
cvs head is 1.4b2-dev.
The lastest release available is 1.4b1

Here is a summary of what's happened in August. Could you please add it to
the Jakarta newsletter,




1) Updating jars to the current production versions(Paul)

   We updated as many Jars as we could to the latest versions without
breaking the dependencies...

2) Added portlet usage tracking/statistics (Mark)

   This new features makes use of Log4J to log portlet usage statistics in
common log format (Apache CLF), which can then be analyzed by tools such as
WebTrends to produce portlet usage statistics.

   Example of logging: - admin [27/Aug/2002:10:23:32 CDT] "GET /jetspeed/UserBrowser
HTTP/1.0" 200 - - admin [27/Aug/2002:10:23:37 CDT] "GET
/jetspeed/GlobalAdminPortlet HTTP/1.0" 200 - - admin [27/Aug/2002:10:23:44 CDT] "GET
/jetspeed/PortletBrowser HTTP/1.0" 200 - - admin [27/Aug/2002:10:23:48 CDT] "GET /jetspeed/PsmlBrowser
HTTP/1.0" 200 - - admin [27/Aug/2002:10:23:59 CDT] "GET /jetspeed/PsmlForm
HTTP/1.0" 200 - - turbine [27/Aug/2002:10:22:55 CDT] "POST
/jetspeed/StockQuote HTTP/1.0" 200 - - turbine [27/Aug/2002:10:22:56 CDT] "POST
/jetspeed/http://www.xmlhack.com/rsscat.php HTTP/1.0" 200 -

3) Added Dutch, Japanese, Italian, Malaysian, and Norwegian Jetspeed
Localization files

   That now makes 9 total languages supported (de,en,es,fr,it,ja,my,nl,no)

4) Implemented style checking for the source code (Paul)

   The build has been updated to automatically check for the availability of
the CheckStyle tool (http://checkstyle.soureforge.net)
   and run a style check on the Jetspeed source to ensure that all committed
code is adhering to Jakarta coding standards.

5) Implemented portlet parameters presentation styles (Mark)

   Custom presentation styles or "widgets" allow for portlet parameters to
have a presentation style associated with them.
   The implementation can be found in the new package:
   Initial Widgets are: checkbox, checkbox group, listbox, ant textarea.

6) Implemented Owner authorization security in the security model (Paul)

   Jetspeed Authorization has added support for declarative security
definitions to specify that only the owner of the resource is allowed
   In the security registry, a new element has been added to the <access>
element, the <allow-if-owner> element:

        <access action="*">

7) Implemented Reference configuration in the Customizer (Paul)

   The customizer now supports placing references to other other PSML
   Previously, the PSML had to be edited by hand in order to include a
   Thus references are defined in one common PSML resource, and then can be
included as a common set of portlets into another PSML resource.

8) Implemented on-line psml import/export facility (Mark)

   Useful for users who store the PSML resources in the database. This
feature works online, the system does not need to be brought down.

9) Added four new live RSS News feeds, contributed by the BBC (David)

   The BBC contributed four live RSS News feeds to Jetspeed, which have been
incorporated into the portlet registry for anyone to use.
   The news feeds are updated every minute (FrontPage Headline News, World
News, Technology, UK News)
