Vignette Application Portal

Or… my pain for the next month.

Just a few questions:


  1. Why is it so hard to find documentation?

  2. Why is it so difficult to add JSTL tag lib support for Vignette custom JSTL tag libs

  3. With portal beans, why do I have to restart the bloody web server every time I want to see the most simple change? (Speaking of JSP changes not bean changes)



Clearly I missed the boat with this stuff somewhere. I know that the current trend is to create JSR-168 portlets, however the application I am maintaining wasn't written that way, and I don’t think that the management is too keen on a re-write in what is supposed to me a maintenance release. Are there tools out there to make this stuff easier? Certainly there must be. I just can't fathom this "industrial strength" portal environment being enterprise worthy, if it is such a pain in the neck to use.

I’m out.

K. 999 out of 1000 people? That post means nothing. Appreciate the fact your knee deep into computer stuff...but seriously. What ever happened to the girl/friend and stuff? That's much more of a draw to click here that some mundane CS jargon.
