Does the book address portal server aspects? I would like to find out about the features available in JBOSS (enterprise license), ease of configuration etc. Any comparisons between other portal servers would also be helpful.

ALSO-

Has anybody attempted migration from WPS to JBOSS. Seems like JBOSS is much cheaper than WPS. However, not sure about the tech support aspects. Also, I am looking at some stats for server startup, compatibility with RAD etc. Any links, articles would be very helpful

The book contains two chapters on the JBoss Portal.

There are many companies that provide support for JBoss AS, such as Unisys, HP and Red Hat.

JBoss AS 5.0 starts up in about 25 seconds on my quad-core desktop (2.4ghz). 4.2.3 starts in under 15 seconds. That's Windows, its even faster if I am run Linux.
