I suggest you get a copy of Sun java Studio creator 2 ea 2 and a copy of
sun java studio enterprise 8 , both of them are free and support portlet development .
JSC has WYSIWYG and good support for developing portlet based on jsr-168 by using jsf and jsf portlet bridge.

Thanks Jignesh.

Masoud, I didn't get much, but anyway I will not build JSR portlet.

Is there any free (open source) portal server available like tomcat???

Thanks.

Check the Portlet FAQ for links to Pluto and JetSpeed, two open source Java portals.

JSC test portlets on pluto which is RI of Portlet and portal spec.
you can use pluto for your learning purpose and then you could deploy your portlet ove one of more advanced portal like
liferay
StringBeans
Exoplatform
which all of them are open source and jsr-168 .... compatible.

Stay away from IBM's Portal. It is not JSR-168, so you're learning a proprietary API.

But we are using that in our project. And anyway both are not much different.

This doesn't hold true with websphere Portal server 5.1. RAD 6.0 can be used to develop JSP-168 prtlet and deployment on WPS 5.1.
WPS 5.0 didn't support JSP 168 portlet API's and used to have IBM's Proprietary prtlet API's.

WebSphere Portlet 5.0.2 already supported JSR 168, learn more about it from this article, b.t.w. by Stefan Hepper (IBM), one of the two specification leads of JSR 168.

The vendor specicific programming model by IBM is still supported in 5.1 (quite obvious that customers demand that), but you can for instance combine portlets of both APIs on one portal page.
