[POP.001.0002] javax.portlet.PortletException

Hi all.
i have a strange problem with portlets. I create a “new portlet application” and add just one portlet to it. when i try to add that portlet to a page, it throws the exception as follows:
[POP.001.0002] A “javax.portlet.PortletException” occurred with the Message “Unable to determine the view to display”

stack trace is attached.

thanks in advance

Did you add a custom .view file to your Portlet? Did you modify the web.xml file at all?
Lastly, what version of MWS & Designer are you using?

i did not add any custom .view file and did not touch any xml files at all.
MWS Version:
MWS Installed Fixes: MWS_8.0_SP2_Fix6

Designer: 8.0.2
eclipse 2.3.2

Ok, I’m not too surprised since you didn’t mention modifying any of those files in your original post.

At this point i don’t have any useful hunches. The best i can come up with is that maybe it is a locale problem (if the JVM is using Turkey as the current locale), however we’ve tested/deployed on so many different locales that i really doubt that is the cause.

I think you’ll have to open an Incident report. Sorry.


well, you are right. the couse of the problem was in fact related to system locale.

i changed regional settings of development computer to English (United States) and now it’s working as expected.

Thanks for the help
