Vitaly Baranovsky commented on JS2-634:
---------------------------------------

David, I have some questions to you. Can you answer it?
1) Where will be store portlet preferences after editing in edit_defaults portlet mode? In
PREFS_NODE/PREFS_PROPERTY_VALUE tables? In .psml files? Or somewhere else?
2) When do you plan to finish development with edit_defaults portlet mode? When do you plan
2.1.3 release?
3) How can I convert my 2.0 preferences (stored in PREFS_NODE/PREFS_PROPERTY_VALUE tables
with no_principal) to new persistence format?

Great thanks!

> There is a wish for implementing "edit_defaults" custom portlet mode as descripted in
JSR168 portlet specification:
> ----------------------------------------------------------
> PLT.A.3 Edit_defaults Portlet Mode
> The edit_defaults portlet mode signifies that the portlet should render a screen to set
the default values for the modifiable preferences that are typically changed in the EDIT screen.
Calling this mode requires that the user must have administrator rights. Therefore, only the
portal can create links for changing the portlet mode into edit_defaults.
> Portlet developers should implement the edit_defaults portlet mode functionality by
> overriding the doDispatch method of the GenericPortlet class and checking for
> PortletMode("edit_defaults ").
> In the deployment descriptor the support for the edit_defaults portlet mode must be
> declared using
> <portlet-app>
> ...
> <portlet>
> ...
> <supports>
> ...
> <portlet-mode> edit_defaults </portlet-mode>
> </supports>
> ...
> </portlet>
> ...
> <custom-portlet-mode>
> <name> edit_defaults </name>
> </custom-portlet-mode>
> ...
> </portlet-app>
> -----------------------------------------------------------
> There is number of situations when there is need of different default preferences for
same portlet type. There is a problem to change default preferences by administrator now.
Because he must to edit psml files manually, without graphical interface.
> For example, i want my portal shows to all users rss feeds from bbc and cnn with RSS
Portlets at main page of my portal. But administrators of my portal needs to know psml format
to change read-only preferences, and they can't do it thru grafical interface.
> So, I think, many people wishes for edit_defaults portlet mode.
> So, this jira record is wish for edit_defaults portlet mode
