Wikipedia is your friend: Blogging

How do you know you have to integrate blogs into your portlet if you have no idea what they are?

There are any number of different blogging software packages, and each one has a different API (if they have one at all). So you will have to pick one (preferably one written in Java) before you can start thinking about integrating it into JetSpeed.

after you read the reference that Ulf gave , come and explain more about what you need
do you mean you need a weblog portlet to add it to your portal? or you need to implement some functionality related to weblog and blogging in one of your own portlets ?

Thats what my problem, Then Thanks for the link u have given to me, i will go through it. And Kalali, i am trying to create a blog porltlet in a portal. My Team Lead asked me to create such a portlet. Its related to Bank project. So i need some of the API's, so that i can easily integrate it in to my portlet.But i didn't get any of the relavent API. ok now what im going to do is, with out API's i will code myself and i try to create a blog portlet, and if get any other problem, i will post the further queries.

I should suggest another approache.
take a look at java.net and sourceforge.net also at http://www.java-source.net/open-source/bloggers
there are several already made blogging system , you can use one of them as a base and try to convert it to a portlet , it will be far easier than creating a blogging system from base.
try to find a Struts / jsf / plain jsp based weblog system and check the apache web site under portal project for portlet bridge
it is easier
