      portlet
    • Initial Committers:
      Jen Bourey
    • Technology Overview:
      JSR-168 portlet using Spring PortletMVC and Jasig's AjaxPorletSupport package. Integrations provided for LDAP and the Google Search Appliance XML API.
    • Community Description:
      Developed at Yale University and currently deployed by Brigham Young University. Also deployed in Unicon's demo portal.
    • JASIG Relationships:
      This portlet works well in uPortal and also displays well in the new 3.2 mobile interface.
    • Benefits to Higher Education:
      This portlet has the potential to provide users with the ability to browse LDAP directory data from the portal. For schools that implement search through a Google Search Appliance, the portlet can also provide campus search within the portal.

      Description

      The search portlet provides a tabbed view of multiple search engines, which right now include LDAP-powered campus directory search, Google Search Appliance-powered campus web search, and a generic Google search. As the project develops, more search integrations may be added.

        According to Jen B., it would be best to hold off on incubation for this project for now. She's actually integrated much of this portlet into the uPortal trunk itself so that we can take advantage of uPortal's existing person directory configuration and permissions, so we may not need this to exist as a separate project in the future.

        On the advice of Jen, the board has accepted the committees recommendation to terminate incubation. The search function as a portlet is no longer interesting or useful. Browsers and toolbars allow users to easily search and uPortal 4 has incorporated search function as well.
