Struts Portlet and JSF Portlet Tutorials (portorials?)

I just wanted to let everyone know that I've posted two new tutorials on my website, namely a tutorial on creating a JSR-168 Struts Portlet, and a JSR168 JSF Portlet.

Free Tutorial on Creating a JSR168 Struts Portlet

Free Tutorial on Creating a JSR-168 Java Server Faces Portlet (JSF)

The two portlets are created using the apache portal bridges for Java Server Faces and Struts, and the portlet are deployed to the JetSpeed2 portal, proving that they actually work.

One thing to note is that each vendor has minor nuances that must be accounted for when using the apache portlet bridge, so you should doublecheck the documentation. What works on JetSpeed2 doesn't always work code for code on WebSphere, BEA or LifeRay.

I should also mention that these aren't intended as full tutorials on Struts or JSF - I just cover the basics. I just give you the rope. You've got to decide whether you'll pull yourself up, or hang yourself with it.

I use IBM's Rational Application Developer 6 (IRAD) to develop the code, but the code isn't WebSphere specific.

Enjoy! Feedback is always welcome.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
