  I have working Konakart ( as a Portlet in Liferay (5.2.3) and works quite well, but always always always in the his/her first visit reads
"javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: Cannot find bean konakartKey in any scope".

  If they press refresh everythings works fine.

  Any idea?.






Hi trevor,

   Not yet, I'm sorry.

   Could be the problem related to cookies?.





Have you ever seen this error before in Konakart as portlet?.

I have been looking for informatation related to the problem and the most frecuent reply is about "automatic versus manual instalation", but that is not my case. I installed Konakart with next steps:

  • ./bin/ant make_liferay_portlet_war

  • ./bin/ant make_admin_liferay_portlet_war -Djbossliferay=true

  • Change  "dbname" in : dbname?zeroDateTimeBehavior=convertToNull   with my  database name

  • Check configuration in konakartadmin to setup paths

  • and... to install as a portlet in Liferay



Did you check Konakart  (KonaKart- as portlet with "liferay-portal-tomcat-6.0-5.2.3". I'm working with MySQL-server-community-5.4.1-0 ?.

Do you know how "konakartKey" is used?, or can you point me to some documentation about it?.

Thanks again.



In the JSPs you can see:

<bean:define id="kkEng" name="konakartKey" type="com.konakart.al.KKAppEng"/>

It expects to find a KonaKart client engine in the session using the key "konakartKey". As you can see in the BaseAction class, this will be created whenever a struts action is called. In your case it looks as if it doesn't exist and so the JSP is complaining.


Thank you Trevor, the problem is fixed.

I have not working with one Konakart portlet, I have "portletized" each Konakart functionality one by one, and to do it I created new Actions (void actions) for some funtionalities, for example BestSellers or the Tree Categories but I forgot to call "MyNewAction.getKKAppEng(request, response);" to initialize the "konakartKey" property.

Please, be sure I will send a public link to the aplication, and some contributions about "making Konakart portletized" and "working with Liferay and Konakart Contexts".

Thank you for Konakart, good job.

I'm sure that the KonaKart Community would appreciate that  :)

This happens because either robots or a direct hit to the following URL


the ForgotPassword.do does not have action class, instead tiles are used......
so the BaseAction's getKKAppEng() method is never called
and "konakartKey" is never stored in the session

a simple work around is just create a simple action class
and edit the struts-config.xml file

ForgotPasswordAction.java is attached

and instead of config in struts-config.xml
Code Select

<action path="/ForgotPassword" forward="/CatalogForgotPasswordPage.do">
<forward name="Login" path="/LogIn.do"/>

use this

Code Select

                <action path="/ForgotPassword" type="com.konakart.actions.ForgotPasswordAction">
<forward name="Login" path="/CatalogForgotPasswordPage.do"/>
