I tried your iframe protlet and after a few changes it showed up just fine, in the banner area, without any decorations.

First, in iframe-object.xml, the statement:


places the iframe in the center column, not in the banner(header).   If you want it in the banner area, use:

Second, in iframe-object.xml, the statement:


causes a new page, named IFrame to be created, and the portlet window to be placed on that page.  Not sure if that is what you really intended, so I changed it to:


However, I image that since the iframe is in the bannner area that you really want it to show up on all the pages.  In that case, you will need several < deployment > entries, each with all the same subnodes though with different < page-name > entries, one for each page.

Fianlly, you stated that you could not provide a jboss-portal.xml file because you were getting errors on the < portal > entry.  I think the cause is that you earlier deployed the iframe portal, possibly deleted the war file, and are now deploying it again.  You really need the jboss-portal.xml file because it links the portal name to the instance name, which is used in the iframe-object.xml file.

I think that perhaps the previous deployment of the iframe portlet is what is causing the problem.  If you are still just experimenting, I suggest wiping out your database and starting over with a fresh installation of the portal.  If you can't do that, rename your portlet and instances.
