An extended <portlet:defineObjects/> tag

I have just created an extended version of Pluto's <portlet:defineObjects/> which will make additional portlet related implicit objects available. So you can access portlet scoped attributes using pure JSTL rather than via scriptlets.

You can find more information about this new extension on JASIG's wiki under portlet defineObjects tag extension.

This new tag extension is an interim measure as the best way to handle the new portlet scopes would be with a portlet aware version of JSTL. From what I understand a portlet aware version of JSTL is now being developed.
