-> Portal and create a portal folder.

3. Edit the xml files under the portal folder.

export a portlet war file to real file system.

6. Copy the war file to jboss portal deploy folder, the portlet will

Bug Feedback:
If you find any bugs in this module, please feedback to this mail list
or to http://www.langhua.cn/bugzilla/.

You may encounter a problem that you can export this module but cannot
import your version of this module. 
This is caused by the SaxWriter which transfers & to & when writing
the module to manifest.xml. 
Unzip your module, edit manifest.xml, replace &path= with &path=,
save and rezip the module.
You will be able to import your module.

Source Code:
You can download this module and source code from OpenCms-Portlet
project in sourceforge.net:

Thanks Polar Research Institute of China who sponsored the first version
of this module.
