The meeting minutes from yesterday's call are up. See:
I pushed two branches to the portletspec3 repository today: PortletState
and newCreateURLs. We now have five branches:
master - main branch containing agreed-upon updates. The apidocs
from this branch are placed on the github.io site linked by the
porteltspec3 project readme.
ErrataChanges - Working branch that I have been using to add the errata
changes. Contains no new info (as of today) as compared to master
PortletState - Prototype API changes for the PORTLETSPEC3-11 proposals #1,
#2, and #4. Proposal #4 is new, and is available from the head of this
PortletState#3 - Prototype API changes for the PORTLETSPEC3-11 proposals #3.
newCreateURLs - Prototype API changes for PORTLETSPEC3-30 (the
createActionURL & createRenderURL methods with a flag for copying
There are also tags available that designate specific versions of the
I can see where this can get confusing quickly, so we may need a naming
scheme and/or use discipline to avoid creating many branches ...
I am a bit hesitant to provide any kind of instructions for getting the
stuff and looking at it, because, although I am getting better, I am not a
git expert yet, and I don't want to lead anybody astray.
But the basic idea, assuming you already have cloned the portletspec3
repository, is as follows (adapt to your own setup ..):
retrieve the updates to your remote tracking branches:
git fetch upstream
git fetch --tags upstream
Update the individual local branch you want to look at:
git checkout PortletState (note that if you
have this branch yet, you DO NOT want to create it before doing the
checkout - you'll get a completely different effect, depending on where you
create the branch).
git merge upstream/PortletState
Build with maven:
cd portlet-api_3.0 (I'll have to add a pom.xml in the root as
And view the apidocs located at:
I hope that provides enough hints to get started, without causing anyone to
trash their repository ...
