Does any one know how I can be assured of moving into a solo state.
I read up on info on IBM sites and the only information is that if I set portletWindowState="solo" and click that link, I would push portlet into solo state. That does not seem to be happening.

<h3>Your <a <br /> page.finance" rel="nofollow">
<% wpsURL.write(out); %>
</wps:urlGeneration>">Statement of Account
includes:</h3>


then my portlet checks if portlet is in solo state.
But this value always returns back a false.

/**
* @param request
* @return
* $A1
*/
public boolean checkSoloMode(RenderRequest request) {
boolean isSoloMode= false;
request.getWindowState();
System.out.println(" THE WINDOW STATE IN PORTLET="+request.getWindowState());
if (request.getWindowState().equals("solo")) {
isSoloMode=true;
}
return isSoloMode;
}


Is this an incorrect way of checking solo State in Portlet.

I am making a very simple JSQL connect call from a Java application.
cstmt =con.prepareCall("{call msp_GetAllNames ?,?,?,?}");

cstmt.setLong(1,this.Number);
cstmt.setDate(2,this.Date);
cstmt.setString(3,this.ID);
cstmt.setInt(4,this.isNumber);

rs=cstmt.executeQuery();

The stored never seems to complete.
Any one gone through this issue.
Running the sp through SQL Query Analyzer works only does not work through Java .

I have a test sandbox environment for Portal 6.0 .
I wish to connect my RAD 7.0 to this so that it looks as if I have integrated a WPS 6.0 test environment .
Is this possible. Are there any documentation any one can post if this is doable.. ?

Thanks for your help .

I am creating a URL =new URL("www.somesite.com/pdf/pdfa.pdf");
When this Servlet is invoked , I am getting this error.


I get error

This URL when hit by a browser can be accessed.
More about the box on which the servlet is .
It is a WebSphere WAS6.1 server which is having two address IP Sec.
It is a DMZ box .
Anyone having any idea why I would not be able to access this URL ?
Any idea how to go about debugging this on a WAS 6.1 environment.

Can portlets internally call portlets (JSR168) .
This is the code I added.
StringBuffer buf = new StringBuffer(request.getContextPath()+response.encodeURL("/PdfServlet"));
log("BasePortlet jsp file name=" + buf.toString() + "Trying to get to SERVLET PDF/SERVLET"
, METHOD_NAME, CLASS_NAME);
PortletRequestDispatcher prd=getPortletContext().getRequestDispatcher(
buf.toString());
prd.include(request,response);
What happens is this gets redirected into the Webcontent area so not sure how I can invoke my servlet from this RequestDispatcher.

Is This possible?
If I want a portlet to communicate with a servlet like this..
StringBuffer buf = new StringBuffer(request.getContextPath()+response.encodeURL("/SomeServlet"));
log("BasePortlet jsp file name=" + buf.toString() + "Trying to get to SERVLET PDF/SERVLET"
, METHOD_NAME, CLASS_NAME);
PortletRequestDispatcher rd=getPortletContext().getRequestDispatcher(
buf.toString());
rd.include(request,response);
Is this possible from inside the portlet. ?
Thanks

Either way what you are trying can not be achieved from portlets.
Youa re trying to open a binary dowloadable file through portlet.
Portlets do not recognize any MIME type except text/html.
So also the httpservletresponse needs to be casted to a websphere specfic servlet response .
Anyway the correct way of handling such calls and I need to send a PDf output is that you invoke a link from your portlet page which in turn invokes a servlet in your web app and do the necessary content header setting in the servlet and write directly the stream output form servlet without going to the portlet.

I have a JSR168 portlet in WebSphere portal 5.1 .
I have saved data in application-scope of the portlet session.
How can I retrieve that data at the servlet end.
My servlet gets invoked from a JSP on the portlet.

I have a PDf file which has forms.
Does any one know of any Java API that can be used to fill in values into the form .
I wish to open the form at runtime and populate the PDF and then show the output as a printer friendly output ?

Thanks

I have a PDf to which I need to append data at specific locations. The way the PDF is is that it has form fields. I need to fill those fields appending to an existing PDF and save the newly created PDF.
I am trying to using the iText API for Java to do that but I cant figure a way to use them for this purpose.
Has any one done that .Please post a small code snippet as to how I can go about doing this.
Please help me out.

Just to answer some who asked if such questions are asked in interview. ...
U WONT BELEIVE IT ... Yes and I didnt beleive in any of them and failed one interview process just becuase of a pile of subjective question I had to answer on XML ,XSL,XSLT, Java ,Swing ,JSP and DB all in one taking in half hour sitting.

I have a solid 8 years of Java with SCEA Web service certified too. But that subjective was something like u needed to be prepared to sit for an exam and I didnt believe in such questions until I hit them in my interview process .. so believe me these questions are worth IT for senior Java positions ALSO !!! ... I know I have been bitten once .
