Get portlet preference

In many cases we need to find portlet preferences.
Below is the code which can help to find portlet preferences.


PortletPreferences preferences = renderRequest.getPreferences();
String portletResource = ParamUtil.getString(request, "portletResource");
if (Validator.isNotNull(portletResource)) {
preferences = PortletPreferencesFactoryUtil.getPortletSetup(request, portletResource);
}
