Portals are Web sites that serve as a starting point to information and applications on the Internet or from an
intranet. To accommodate the aggregation and display of diverse content in a dynamic manner, a portal
server must provide a framework that breaks the different portal components into pluggable parts. One class
of these parts are portlets.
This book explains how you can develop Java and Web Services for Remote Portlet compliant portlets
and how to test and deploy these portlets on Apache open source software. The book is split into three main
parts: the first part introduces the portlet technology; the second part explains portals and the Apache open
source software available for portlet development. The third part gives more portlet examples and shows how
to set-up a complete portal.
