What is this?
uPortal-home is an alternative user interface for some of the most frequent
user interactions in
- home page
- app directory
- rendering static content
- rendering simple Portlets
This alternative user interface is implemented using AngularJS as a client-side in-browser experience. It relies upon uPortal (through uPortal REST APIs) and delegates to uPortal for the user experiences that uPortal-home doesn't directly implement or inline (so, for more complex JSR-286 Portlet experiences).
Resources for understanding what you can do with
cd uportal-home cp web/src/main/resources/endpoint.properties.example web/src/main/resources/endpoint.properties
This file contains your server side proxy configurations. See the example file for examples
mvn clean packagefrom the root directory to build the war files.
See documentation site.
uPortal-home is a uPortal App-Framework project.
This is the portal home page. It uses the frame as a base then adds in the layout, app directory, and features pages.
To deploy the home build from the base directory described above. Then
cd ./web and run
mvn tomcat7:redeploy (assuming you have auto deploy
configured). The home will now be deployed to
Running w/ Mock Data
To run simply type
mvn clean package && mvn jetty:run from the root directory.
By default Jetty runs on port 8080.
Deploying to a Running Local Tomcat
We added in support to deploy the artifact to Tomcat using Maven. To setup add a
server to your
.m2/settings.xml for Tomcat. Example:
<server> <id>TomcatServer</id> <username>user</username> <password>password</password> </server>
The id of
TomcatServer is important here. Add that user/pass combo to your
$TOMCAT_HOME/conf/tomcat-users.xml. Also be sure you have a role of manager
<role rolename="manager"/> <user username="user" password="password" roles="manager-script"/>
The role of
manager-script gives them the ability to use the
/text api from
Read more about how this works in Tomcat documentation.
With this you can run
mvn tomcat7:deploy or
mvn tomcat7:redeploy if you have
already deployed it once. We also wrote a script for this. Just run
Deploy to Remote Instance
uportal-home/web/target/web.war in the Tomcat instance that runs uPortal
and fire it up. Should just work.
