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 /

He was following one of my earlier blog posts, Using Web Application Integrator to integrate Lotus Quickr Services for WebSphere Portal into WebSphere Portal, to integrate Quickr 8.1.1 into WebSphere Portal 6.1.5, but was finding that the WAI JavaScript was not being injected into the Quickr page header, even though he'd added the JS to the header.jsp on the Quickr server.

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: -

Error description

Web App Integrator needs to be able to support theme policy and multiple levels on integration.

Problem summary

Changes to the WAI theme to keep backward compatability for the new and previous WAI portlet.

Problem conclusion

This fix has been packaged with PM09187 and is found on FixCentral here:

There are also similar fixes for and

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 ...

Richard asked me to mention that he was actually using WebSphere Portal plus the 6.1.5 Feature Pack, added as an upgrade
