Hi all,

I am a newbie in this portlet technology, though I have experience in jsps and servlets. I understood the concept of Portlet and portals, but I need help in deploying a simple portal.

1. What all software should I need for portal to work? (like what application servers, what jar file etc...)
2. Where can I get them and how to configure them?

I tried downloading jetspeed 2, but I could not fina a place to download. I found a place only to get the source, but how can I compile them. I installed maven 1.0.2, but I dont know what to do with that. I also downloaded pluto, but How should I go about it.

Any help, tutorials, articles would be appreciated.

u could try the The JBoss portal ,weblogic portal .
u could try building your own portal framework which can very exhauting.
but lots of fun
