Portlets in Action is a comprehensive, hands-on guide to building portlet-driven applications in Java. Covers Portlet 2.0, Spring 3.0 Portlet MVC, WSRP 2.0, Portlet Bridges, Ajax, Comet, Liferay, GateIn, Spring JDBC, and Hibernate.


Portlets are the small Java applications that run within a portal. Good portlets work independently and also communicate fluently with the portal, other portlets, as well as outside servers and information sources. Using Java's Portlet 2.0 API and portal servers like Liferay, you can build flexible, stable business portals without the design overhead required by other application styles.


Portlets in Action is a comprehensive guide to building portlet-driven applications in Java. It teaches portlet development hands-on as you develop a portal that incorporates most key features of the Portlet 2.0 API. And because portals and portlets are so flexible, the accompanying source code can be easily adapted and reused. Along the way, you'll learn how to work with key web frameworks like Spring 3.0 Portlet MVC and DWR.
