Hi Ranchmates,

I would like to kindly ask aside from the JSR-168 specs, what other resources can you recommend in developing Portal & Portlets. I am looking particularly for very good books, and tutorials.

Thanks very much in advanced.

You'll want to download and install an actual portal server. Apache.org provides two: Pluto, which is really good for just doing testing of individual portlets, and JetSpeed, which is a full blown portal server that is ready for both testing and prime-time deployment. They're both solid.

With those downloads, you get all the required files you need to link to in order to do portlet development with Eclipse or NetBeans.

My signature links provide a variety of tutorials which take you through everything from the Hello World Portlet, to very complicated Struts and JSF portlets. Portlet Examples and Portal Server Tutorials. The site has the dual purpose of promoting my Portlet Development Book, which youmight also find helpful.
