Portlet project tab doesn't show up in eclipse

Hi Ranchers,

I installed JSR168 and JSR286 plugins for portal development for eclipse using 'software updates' option wherein i give the url 'http://portlet-eclipse.sourceforge.net/update' in the Add Site option. I installed the plugin. But the project tab doesn't show any portal project type.

If i see in 'WIndows -> Preferences' option, it will show portlet.

My requirement is to create a portal project in eclipse that supports spring framework.

Can anybody help me in successfully create a portal project in eclipse?

I'm using jetspeed 2.1.3 as the portal server.

Thanks in advance for any help in this regard.

This is just a guess because I don't have that plug-in, but I suspect that what you want to do is create a web application project, and then add portlet classes to that project.

Well .... if you create a web project, it gives you only web.xml. For a portlet project, we need protlet.xml file. And also a build file that created a war file which can be deployed to any portal server.

How do i get those files in a web project?

Is there any other way of doing it? PLease suggest.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
