      Description

      The social enabling of simple app doc, http://wikis.glassfish.org/socialsite/Wiki.jsp?page=SimpleApp,
      works perfect if SocialSite was installed with AS_SERVER_NAME = localhost. But in typical user scenarios,
      the AS_SERVER_NAME will be configured with some actual server name (say mymachine.sfbay.sun.com).

      In this case, the user will have to user the actual server name configured for SocialSite rather than
      localhost - specifically in the files that are given for download in section "Add SocialSite Features to the
      Application" of the doc. If these files refer to localhost but the SocialSite instance was configured with
      some actual host name, then the sample app wont show gadgets at all.

        A statement to this effect appears at the beginning of the tutorial in the
        section on installing GlassFish. I've put this statement in bold, but I don't
        think it's necessary to repeat it at every occurrence of "localhost".

        I think it likely that people trying out the tutorial are likely to do so on
        their local system rather than a production system, so for this audience,
        localhost is the more probable deployment vehicle.

        I apologize for misunderstanding the description of the issue. I've changed the
        instructions for socialite_context.xml and ssheader.jspf to include instructions
        for changing localhost if GlassFish is installed on a local system. Please let
        me know if this is satisfactory.
