Extend User Profile (and user object)

Question asked by toml on Jun 10, 2009
Hi,

We are trying to extend the user profile and correspondingly the user object. To be more precise, we just added a custom aspect with custom property to cm:person. Adding the aspect is OK. Yet, getting/setting the custom aspect via a new field in the user profile seems to be a nightmare. Seems like a lot of the property names are hardcoded in multiple java-files (SlingshotUserFactory.java; ScriptUser.java, which is final…). So we have the impression we have to dive very deep into the core of the product, just to extend a user object.

Has anyone any suggestions on a way to cleanly and easily extend the user profile?

Thanks,
tom
