This file contains details of the contents of the Portlet Development Kit (PDK).
The PDK is a set of APIs, user interface widgets, styles and other assets that allow
you to develop portlets for Teradata Viewpoint. It also contains documentation, code
samples, how-to's and other reference materials to help in that endeavor.
Extracting the PDK
The PDK is distributed externally in two archives (due to the presence of certain
open-source artifacts). These are:
Unzip both archives, and copy the contents of the archives into the same directory.
The directory structure of the PDK directory is as follows:
and tag library documentation)
|-- portlet-generator.jar (the portlet generator, run with "java -jar portlet-generator.jar")
|-- README.txt (this readme file)
|-- src/ (all source code as usual)
|-- viewpoint-portal/ (the development portal)
The documentation in the doc/site directory contains all of the instructions you need to
get started. Open doc/site/index.html in your browser and click on the Getting Started
link for details of how to setup and install the development version of Teradata Viewpoint.
You will need to have this installed so you can deploy your portlets.
Once you have setup your development portal, you can use the Portlet Generator to
start creating portlets. Again, follow the instructions in the web documentation
