Generating Liferay URL in Velocity template for Web Content Display

I would like to be able to use portletURLFactory to create a URL in a velocity template for the Web Content Display portlet. Unfortunately, according to [url=http://www.liferay.com/web/guest/community/wiki/-/wiki/Main/CMS+Template+(Velocity)]these links, we don't have access to a real HttpServletRequest object here (and it's odd that we have access to portletURLFactory in this case).

Is there any way to get around this without using friendly URLs for any portlets to which you want to link? What I'd like to do (and what doesn't work) is something like:
1
2#set($plid = $getterUtil.getLong($portalUtil.getPlidFromPortletId($getterUtil.getLong($groupId), "portletName")))
3#set($url = $portletURLFactory.create($request, "portletName", $plid, "RENDER_PHASE"))
4## set some other parameters on the url
5## include the link


However, $url will not be populated because the call to create will not work, as far as I understand, because $request is not the real HttpServeletRequest.

Thanks,
Erik

Jelmer,

Is there a way to ensure that the portlet_url.js file gets included on a page? I know I can configure portlets to include specific JS files, but this isn't included in the page I'm building on which I'm putting the Web Content Display. Otherwise, that looks like a great solution.

Thanks,
Erik

You include the module something like this :

1AUI().ready('liferay-portlet-url', function(A) {
2
3... code goes here
4});

Hello Erik,

Did you got it ?

I cannot achiveve the class initialization, i don't why, may be you will find the reason or let us know about your code so i can compare.

Here is an abstract from the velocity web content template :

#foreach ($userOrganization in $userOrganizations)
#if ($userOrganization.getParentOrganization().getGroupId() == 10698)
#set ($httpRequest = $portalUtil.getHttpServletRequest())
#set ($myPlaceURL = $portletFactoryUtil.create($httpRequest, "49", $userOrganization.getGroup().getDefaultPublicPlid(), "ACTION_PHASE"))
#set ($myPlaceURL2 = $portletFactoryUtil.create($request, "49", $userOrganization.getGroup().getDefaultPublicPlid(), "ACTION_PHASE"))
$userOrganization.getGroup().getDefaultPublicPlid()
$myPlaceURL.toString()
$myPlaceURL2.toString()
## $myPlaceURL.setWindowState("normal")
## $myPlaceURL.setPortletMode("view")
## $myPlaceURL.setParameter("struts_action", "/my_places/view")
## $myPlaceURL.setParameter("groupId", $userOrganization.getGroupId().toString())
## $myPlaceURL.setParameter("privateLayout", "false")

## $myPlaceURL.toString()

<li><a href="${myPlaceURL.toString()}">$userOrganization.Name</a></li>

#set ($matched = $matched + 1)
#end
#end

Thank you

Hi Mazhar Alam

I had the same problem creating a portletURL object from velocity

This is the signature

PortletURLFactory.create(PortletRequest portletRequest, String portletId, long plid, String lifecycle)

Notice that plid requires a long type whereas the class of the $plid object available in velocity is String.

For me, this did the trick
1
2set($tmp = 0)
3#set ($plidLong = $tmp.parseInt($plid))


And then use $plidLong as param for PortletURLFactory.create

Hope that helps.

Regards

Hi All,

There is no working solution in this tread.

The problem with th PortletURLFactory.create(PortletRequest portletRequest, String portletId, long plid, String lifecycle) method, not really the plid. Yes of course, you must cast it to long with $getterUtil.getLong(), but the real pain the portletRequest input parameter.

Can anybody show a WORKING soluton on liferay 6.2?!

$request is a hashMap, the theme-display in it a hashMap too
$xmlRequest is a string which made from PortletRequest with toXml(method), but I did not find any method to convert it back.

Is any way to get the request in velocity as httpServletRequest or PortletRequest object?!?

I found the following, which is NOT working:
1#set ($serviceContext = $portal.getClass().forName("com.liferay.portal.service.ServiceContextThreadLocal").getServiceContext())
2#set ($httpServletRequest = $serviceContext.getRequest())


Something else?

i believe you will have access to PortletRequest (RenderRequesT) in the template.
You can use PortalUtil.getHttpServletRequest (PortletRequest portletRequest) to get the http request and then use PortletUrlFactory.
