||What Is a Portlet|
|Subject:||Pluto now has a deployment interface|
Since rc-3, Pluto has an admin portlet application that includes a web interface for deploying portlets to Pluto and eliminates the necessity of working with the registry XML files. Click on the Admin link on Pluto's navigation and the help (help mode) link in Deploy War portlet for instructions on how to deploy custom portlets with the Admin interface. You will need to restart Pluto to see a newly deployed portlet in the Pluto portal. However, in the 1.0.1 GA release, due out this week, the admin portlet app will support hot deployment of portlets.
BTW, I am a Pluto commiter and the creator of the Admin interface.
