I have same Question. Which IDE we can use for portal Application.

If I am not wrong we need separate Server also ? is it true.

You'll need a portal server (that contains portlet container) to run portlets, application server is always needed for having portal server (am I right here?).

You can choose IBM or BEA or any other vendor or open source products.

IDE: IBM RAD or IBM RSA or IBM WSAD or BEA Workshop can be used to develop portlets rapidly.

Who said you needed an IDE?

Here's a tutorial that shows you how to develop a portlet with nothing more than the JDK:

Developing Portlets with the JDK and Notepad as the IDE

If you can do it with notepad, then you can use any IDE you want! Why not eclipse? Or NetBeans. You just need the portal libraries, a compiler, and a jar/war utility.

You also need a portal server, but you can get one from Download Pluto (very simple) or JetSpeed (more prime time). That's all you need to get started.
