Getting started

Prerequisite

You must have a portal implementing the portlet 2.0 specification. If you want to try Visioneo reports on a new independant environment, your best option is to download the latest Liferay version bundled with tomcat. This won't require any setup and you can run your portal a few minutes after the download.
Make sure the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) of your portal has at least 1024Mb heap memory (2 Gb ore more recommended), and at least 512Mb of permanent memory. Refer to your portal or your application server documentation for more informations about these JVM arguments.
 

If you already installed a previous Visioneo reportlet version, the safest way to upgrade is:

  • Remove visioneo through the portal UI,

  • Restart the portal

  • Install the new version

Install from Liferay Marketplace

If you work with a Liferay portal, then ignore the install process of this article and go ahead to Install from Liferay Marketplace

Install on Apache Pluto Although Apache Pluto is not really a portal, it is very important for a portlet project to run correctly on this container, for at least these reasons: It starts in a few seconds, and therefore is often used in developpements environments It is considered as a reference portlet container implementation for the jsr 286 specifications Some portals base their portlet integration on the Pluto source code (Jahia, uPortal) Thus, the visioneo reportlet is regularly tested...
Install on uPortal uPortal is based on Apache Pluto's portlet container. This portal is pleasant to use, and all reportlet features are supported from v4.0.5 uPortal release / v0.9.4 reportlet.

Installation steps on Gatein Gatein is the original portal on wich the reportlet has been developed, therefore all features are perfectly supported.

Therefore, you should rename the downloaded .war file to remove the version number. For example, if you have downloaded visioneo-reportlet-1.2.0.quickstart.war,...

Install on Jahia Jahia has a nice user interface, however it does not have currently the best portlet container. Unlike other java portals, Jahia is mainly based on a proprietary concept of modules instead of portlets. This difference is exacerbated with the latest version tested (6.6.1), we hope this will be improved in the future but currently Jahia portal is not a good choice if you plan to use standard portlets. 1-Run the portlet manager You must be logged in your Jahia portal as an...
