Where is source code for Page Builder 2 theme

The WebSphere portal server has a very different directory layout/ application deployment structure compared to the previous version, i think this was done to support multiple profiles but i need to dig into that part.

I am trying to learn about PageBuilder2(CSA2) theme that was introduced in WPS 7.0, so i thought i will look into the source code to find out how it works so i went to wp_profiles/installedApps folder but i could not see PageBuilder2.ear. In fact it seems that installedApps folder has few applications



But when i tried accessing any portal page i could see some PageBuilder2 theme related jsp's being initialized

So i went to wps_profile/temp folder, which will have .class file for every .jsp file that gets complied into .java first and then .class file and i could see a PageBuilder2_Theme and many other folders related application that are not there in installedApps




Since the temp folder had a PageBuilder2_Theme folder and it had .class files corresponding to .jsp's used by theme that confirmed that there is a .ear file behind it. So i checked the wp_profile/config/cells/localhost/application folder which is used for storing configuration for every .ear file that is installed on the server and there i could see PageBuilder2_Theme.ear file like this




Once you find the directory corresponding to the application that your looking for in wp_profile/config/cells/localhost/application folder, it becomes easy, you can go to PageBuilder2_theme/deployments/PageBuilder2_Theme folder and there you can find the deployment.xml which has information about where this application is actually installed. This is how the deployment.xml for PageBuilder2_Theme looks like on my machine


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<appdeployment:Deployment xmi:version="2.0" xmlns:xmi="http://www.omg.org/XMI"

<classloader xmi:id="Classloader_1282248412894" mode="PARENT_LAST"/>
<modules xmi:type="appdeployment:WebModuleDeployment" xmi:id="WebModuleDeployment_1282248412894" deploymentId="1"
startingWeight="10000" uri="PageBuilder2.war">
<targetMappings xmi:id="DeploymentTargetMapping_1282248412895" target="ServerTarget_1282248412894"/>
<classloader xmi:id="Classloader_1282248412895"/>
</modules>
<properties xmi:id="Property_1282248412894" name="metadata.complete" value="true"/>
</deployedObject>
<deploymentTargets xmi:type="appdeployment:ServerTarget" xmi:id="ServerTarget_1282248412894" name="WebSphere_Portal"
nodeName="localhost"/>
</appdeployment:Deployment>


In this file if you search for binariesUrl you will find the location where this .ear file is actually installed which is ${WPS_HOME}/theme/wp.mashup.cc.theme/installedApps/wp.mashup.cc.theme.ear. So i went to that folder and i could find the source code for PageBuilder2 theme there.

Good exploration Sunil. I had searched for PageBuilder and found out the folders in WebSphere root folder. The steps you have shown are really good to locate any referenced application.

Thanks
