7.4. Accessing CMS Content

The CMSPortlet delivers content transparently, without modifying the displayed URL. It is desirable to display binary content, such as GIF, JPEG, PDF, ZIP, and so on, outside of the confines of the portal. For example, /content/default/images/jboss_logo.gif displays the jboss_logo.gif file outside of the portal.
To display content outside of the portal, the portal interprets any path beginning with /content as a request for CMS content. As long as the <mime-type> is not text/html, or text/text, and the path to the content begins with /content, the content is rendered independently, outside of the portal.
