Examine modules in theme analyzer in IBM WebSphere Portal Server 8.5

Examine modules is divided into two parts.

  1. Examine modules by profile -- explore the modules of a specific profile
  2. Examine all modules  -- explore all of the modules available with the system, theme, or both.
Modules by profile 

Click "Examine Modules by profile" in theme analyzer page.

Select a profile in the Select Profile screen and then advance to the Module Explorer to explore the modules in that profile.The Select Profile screen displays the themes and their profiles in the tree view and shows details on the selected branch in the details view.

The tree view also shows in parentheses which theme and profile is the default so this information is easily visible. All other information is shown in the details view, such as the location of the profile JSON file.

All Modules

Click "Examine All Modules" in theme analyzer page.

Double Click on any theme(example Portal 8.5), two modules are displayed.
  • System Modules: Contains all modules that are defined globally through a plugin.xml.
  • Theme Modules: Contains all modules that are defined within the themes contribution folder as part of the JSON files. This branch is only shown when a theme is selected.

The tree view shows the module hierarchy, the details view shows details on the selected module from the tree view.

 The details view displays the details for the selected module such as:
  • ID: Displays the module ID.
  • Version: Displays the module version, if one was defined.
  • Is system-module: Yes if the module is globally defined through a plugin.xml file.
  • Is meta-module: Yes if the module does not contain any contributions, but instead contains only prerequisites.
  • Is deprecated: Yes, if the module was deprecated.
  • Location: Displays the file path for the module.
  • Capabilities: Displays all capabilities for the module.
  • Prereqs: Displays all prerequisites for the module.
  • Parents: Displays all parent modules for the module
  • Contributions: Displays all contributions by contribution and sub contribution. The resources are elements that can be clicked, which open a new window and serves the resource in the browser when clicked.
