Wesley Hales, lead JBoss Portal UI Engineer has announced the beta 6 release of JBoss Portlet Bridge --
Only a month after beta 5, we are releasing beta 6 with some nice enhancements and bug fixes. I'm pretty sure this will be the last beta release for the 1.0 version. As most of you know, the JBoss Portlet Bridge is a little different than most implementations. We are integrating Seam and RichFaces, so even though the JSF part of the bridge may be running at a GA level (and the spec being final), the RichFaces and Seam integration still has some work left to be done and that may be at a candidate or beta level. As always, let us know what you think and join us on the forums.
Along with the small fixes, here is what's new:
RichFaces dependencies are no more for a normal JSF portlet. Previously you needed the RichFaces jars on your classpath to use the bridge. This was mostly due to early development integration of ajax in the 301 bridge which needed to be refactored.
There is now an automatic propagation of Locales. Any <supported-locales/> defined in portlet.xml will be automatically added to your JSF application running inside the portlet. Currently this is only available for JBoss Portal in the 1.0 bridge due to getSupportedLocales() not being in the spec. This should be fully available to all portlet containers in the 2.0 bridge.
