Accessing property of different component in same application?


I have a EP 6 portal application with several components.

I need some properties not only within the component but

also within different components.

I wonder if I have to administer these properties for

each component separately in portalapp.xml or if there

is a chance to access a property of a different component

by a e.g. servlet. I also thought of storing these

values in application-config section but I couldn't find

a way to access them.

Thanks in advance

    Hello Hans,

    one, basic possibilty is to read out the file with ordnary XML-handling:

    basePath = componentRequest.getPrivateResourcePath();

    gives You the "basePath" that keeps the portalapp.xml

    load the XML wit the pathinfo: basePath + portalapp.xml.

    After this You can do Your XML-work. Maybe there is much smarter way...

      Noel, Walter,

      I did it using a bean and putting it in the httpsession

      as I thought of before.

      I provided you both a few point,

      Noel for this interesting feature (maybe I can use this

      for another problem) and Walter for the links.
