Configuration Information


  • The NetBeans Portlet Plugin software has the same configuration requirements as the NetBeans IDE 5.5 software.

Known Limitations


  • The NetBeans Portlet Plugin software cannot be used to deploy portlets when the Portlet Container 1.0 Beta software is remote.

  • The NetBeans Plugin allows PortletName with special characters.

  • The NetBeans Plugin creates a skeleton for EDIT mode and HELP mode even though they are not selected during portlet creation.

  • Creating a portlet  with the characters "!@#$%^&*()_+|\=-`~[][{}:";'<>?,./" as PortletName causes NetBeans to hang.
