How to implement breadcrumb in Weblogic Portal

Breadcrumbs is one of the cool features of weblogic portal framework for UI navigation. We have successfully implemented this functionality in one our portal applications. That was based on weblogic portal 10.2 version. I think it should work with weblogic portal 10.3 as well. Let me know if you are running into any issues with the code. This jsp should be included as part of page.jsp.

Breadcrumbs.jsp:
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8"%>
<%@ page import="com.bea.netuix.servlets.controls.window.WindowPresentationContext,
                 com.bea.netuix.servlets.controls.window.TitlebarPresentationContext,
                 java.util.ArrayList,
                 java.util.Iterator,
                 com.bea.portlet.PageURL,
                 com.bea.netuix.servlets.controls.page.BookPresentationContext,
                 com.bea.netuix.servlets.controls.page.PagePresentationContext,
                 com.bea.netuix.servlets.controls.window.WindowCapabilities"
%>
<%@ page session="false"%>
<%@ taglib uri="http://www.bea.com/servers/portal/tags/netuix/render" prefix="render" %>

    This is the JSP for the showing breadcrumbs in XYZ Eagle portal.
    It is part of the skeleton file page.jsp.

    Implementation based on WebLogic Portal 10.2.
