Snap Preview

So now the links in the blog have a snap preview. I am not sure how it happened. I tried to add it but could not figure out how to do that. Place your cursor on one of the hyperlinks. It is nice.

WebSphere Portal PUMA API

The details of our WebSphere Portal users are stored in IBM Tivoli LDAP server. This code prints what attributes of users are actually available and enables us to show them in a theme JSP. So our JSR 168 portlets have to further rely on IBM-specific code. Portability is really a lost cause.


     javax.naming.Context ctx = new javax.naming.InitialContext(); home = (
     PumaProfile profile = home.getProfile( request );
     List attributes = profile.getDefinedUserAttributeNames();
     User user = profile.getCurrentUser();
     Map map = profile.getAttributes(user, attributes);
     Iterator iterator = attributes.iterator();

      while (iterator.hasNext()) {
        String attribute = (String);
        System.out.println("["+ attribute +"][" +
                                  map.get(attribute) + "]");

}catch( PumaSystemException pse ){
     System.out.println( "PumaSystemException" );
}catch( PumaModelException pme ){
     System.out.println( "PumaModelException" );
}catch( PumaMissingAccessRightsException pmare ){
     System.out.println( "PumaMissingAccessRightsException" );
}catch( Exception e ){
     System.out.println( "Exception" );
