WebSphere Portal 6.1.5 and Web Application Integrator
One of my IBM US colleagues, Richard Robbins, hit a problem with the Web Application Integrator portlet and WebSphere Portal 6.1.5 / 22.214.171.124.
Thanks to a quick turnaround on a PMR with IBM Support, Richard was able to identify that he was missing a crucial fix for WP615, reported in this APAR PM09151, which states: -
Web App Integrator needs to be able to support theme policy and multiple levels on integration.
Changes to the WAI theme to keep backward compatability for the new and previous WAI portlet.
This fix has been packaged with PM09187 and is found on FixCentral here:
There are also similar fixes for 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
With the fix applied, and the page configured to use the default Portal 6.1 theme ( rather than the new enhanced Page Builder theme ), all worked according to plan.
Will test at some point but hopefully this'll help others out in the meantime ...
Thanks, Richard, much appreciated ...
