I've got a largely empty WAR called "myportal-topology.war" that has just a *-object.xml file in the WEB-INF called "myportal-topology-object.xml"...

The head of the file looks like this:

  | <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  | <!DOCTYPE deployments PUBLIC
  |    "-//JBoss Portal//DTD Portal Object 2.6//EN"
  |    "http://www.jboss.org/portal/dtd/portal-object_2_6.dtd">
  | <deployments>
  |    <deployment>
  |       <context>
  |          <context-name/>
  |             <properties>
  |  		      <property>
  |  		         <name>portal.defaultObjectName</name>
  | 		         <value>myportal</value>
  | 		      </property>
  | 		   </properties>
  |       </context>
  |    </deployment>
  |    <deployment>
  |       <parent-ref/>
  |       <if-exists>overwrite</if-exists>
  |       <portal>
  |          <portal-name>myportal</portal-name>
  |          <supported-modes>
  |             <mode>view</mode>
  |             <mode>edit</mode>
  |             <mode>help</mode>
  |          </supported-modes>
  |          <supported-window-states>
  |             <window-state>normal</window-state>
  |             <window-state>minimized</window-state>
  |             <window-state>maximized</window-state>
  |          </supported-window-states>
  |          <properties>
  | ...

This deploys fine and populates the pages with the proper instances and all that jazz.  Only problem is that it doesn't set the default PORTAL to "myportal".

I have the default page working no problem... just not the default portal...

How do I get this working?  I've seen a number of folks asking this question and the answers always seem to be either telling them how to set the default page (wrong answer), or "I think it's somewhere in X but you can figure it out", or "use the admin portlet" (not an option for me since we're trying to make this an automated deployment process.

Thanks in advance,
