Request parameters from a portlet in eXo/GateIn

Portlet specs does not provide a standard way to read a parameter from the request within a portlet, for example to get the myparameter parameter in http://localhost/portal?myparameter=myvalue.

request.getParameter() within a portlet does not help since the request object is a PortletRequest, not the HttpRequest.

An easy solution in eXo/GateIn is to use the getRealRequest method of the concrete implementation of PortletRequest of GateIn. So, in order to retrieve the myparameter param from the request in the render phase, you can do :

((org.gatein.pc.portlet.impl.jsr168.api.RenderRequestImpl) request).getRealRequest().getParameter("myparameter")

    Which library do I need and how to get it (maven depencendy would be nice) to import the RenderRequestImpl? I did not find any jar or nothing from internet.

      The class is in the pc-portlet library. The maven artifact is org.gatein.pc:pc-portlet.
