GIT

We're using GITHUB now for the development of esup-filemanager

https://github.com/EsupPortail/esup-filemanager

So don't hesitate to fork it and to send us some "pull requests" to improve it !

  1. esup-filemanager-portlet_1_0 branch
    That's the development branch for "portlet 1.0" (JSR 168) compatible releases of esup-filemanager - esup-filemanager 2.x.x releases  come from this branch.
    [tip : see below to call mvn jetty:run to test this releases]
  2. master branch
    That's the development branch for the futures releases of esup-filemanager - it uses "portlet 2.0" API (JSR 286) - releases will be like 3.x.x.
    [tip : you can't use no more mvn jetty:run to launch quickly a test of esup-filemanager - use instead mvn portlet-prototyping:run]

Test - Servlet

You can test esup-filemanager like a servlet. Do simply : 

Next, point your browser on this url :

http://localhost:8080/esup-filemanager/servlet-ajax/

With default config file, Bob drive is mapped on  file:///.

Portlet - uPortal deployment

Files that you should modify for configurations :

  • src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/context/drives.xml
    That's the Main config files (Read it to see what kinds of configurations you can use !).
    Put isPortlet to java.lang.Boolean.TRUE.
  • src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/portlet.xml
     user-attribute tags
  • src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/web.xml
    For ProxyCAS, setup your cas server.

To deploy esup-filemanager, here the usual command line :

Portlet preferences

Even if the most part of configurations is set on drives.xml, you can also define some portlet preferences when registering/publishing an "Esup File Manager" Portlet.

  • defaultPortletView : can be equals to standard, wai or mobile
  • defaultPath : that's the default path which is opened when the user displays the portlet (if defaultPath is multi-valued, the first available is choosed).
  • contextToken : it allows to show only some drives (that have the same contextToken set up on drives.xml)
  • showHiddenFiles : to hide/show 'hidden files'
  • useDoubleClick : use of double click when browsing
  • useCursorWaitDialog : display a waiting dialog when loading

Some of this preferences can also be edited by user himself with the "edit portlet mode".

uPortal supported versions

  • esup-filemanager 2.0.0 doesn't work on uPortal 4 (tested on uPortal 4.0.4)   
  • esup-filemanager 2.1.0 works on both  uPortal    v3 & v4 ( tested on uPortal 4.0.4)
  •  Note that next, esup-filemanager will be used the new possibilities offered by JSR 286 (Portlet 2.0), and so it will be no longer compatible with JSR168 portals ( like uPortal v2 and v3)
