Is it possible to load a Java Servlet plugin in the Customer Portal?

Currently to access a plugin I created, I have to navigate to "", but from a Service Desk customer account that page is inaccessible. is there a way to move the servlet into the Service Desk environment?

Thanks for any help you can provide

For the curious since the documentation for plugins is horribly outdated and patchy:

To let a customer user see a servlet plugin, add the following to atlassian-plugin.xml

<customercontext key="keyName" path="/plugins/servlet/myServletUrlPatternHere">
<uri regex=".*"/>


Hopefully that saves someone else the trouble of figuring it out.

Thanks for sharing Jackson. The information is useful :)

Did you manage to get the decorator to render the header and footer like the Customer Portal?

You're welcome :)

Never found out quite how to implement that, if you find out I'd be interested to know myself.
