    Hi Edward,

    if "plainDescription" really is a property of your component, then:

    IPortalComponentProfile profile =
        request.getComponentContext().getProfile();
    String prop = profile.getProperty("plainDescription");

    But "plainDescription" sounds like a standard attribute of a property? In this case, to retrieve the attribute:

    IPortalComponentProfile profile =
        request.getComponentContext().getProfile();
    String attrib = profile.getPropertyAttribute("yourPropertyName", "plainDescription");

    > what I realy want is this.

    I don't understand what's your aim so far.

    Hope it helps
