I agree it's common.  Maybe I'm misunderstanding the documentation then, because it implies that I should not need the second portal.

Based on what I see here, from the reference manual.


In 7.2 accessing a portal

anonymous wrote : 
  |  The default portal is used when no portal is specified. How selection is done:
  |     * /portal/ points to the default page of the default portal.
  |     * /portal/portal-name/ points to the default page of the portal-name portal. 

Which implies that when I start up my container from scratch, without changing the context path, I should be able to go to

http://localhost:8080/portal  and get the default.

In addition, the documentation seems to say if I go to http://localhost:8080/portal/jimmy i should be taken to the jimmy portal.  I can accept if you're going to say "no" but maybe the documentation should be clearer?
