Liferay 6.2 weather portlet stopped working - OpenWeatherMap.org requires now an api key?

    Details

      Description

      Weather portlet soes not show weather nor does it accept configuration of Cities / Zip codes.

      Steps to reproduce:

      • Deploy Weather portlet
      • Add Weather portlet to page

      Expected behaviour: Show weather of configured cities
      Witnessed bahaviour: blank weather information. Search box remains in view, though, and takes yout to http://www.openweathermap.org/, when clicked.

      Other problem:

      • go to portlet configuration
      • try to seave settings (without a change).

      You get the error (this is an example "The following are invalid cities or zip codes: New York, Chicago, Los Angeles."

      It seems that as of now OpenWeatherMap.org requires a api key in all requests, and it does not seem to be supported in the current version of the weather portlet.

      This incident does not seem to be a duplicate of the previous similar issues, as the source or the weather information has been changed after them.
