Folks,


Could anyone explain what the portlets and mashups are. How do they differ..


and,

I want to develop portlets on JBoss portal server. But I hardly found online technical support for that ( even from forums, support is that effective ) !. I tried developing it, but i could not continue doing so.

Could any tell me how to proceed with portlet development?

Mashups are just small content blocks or aggregation blocks that you can put anywhere. Portlets are similar, but they require a portal server.

For some portlet development tutorials, check out my signature links on the portal. There's lots of free tutorials on JSR168 portlet development there.

If both are same, then why portlets alone need portal server.
My guess portal gives same kind of different information thru different portal page. eg: CNN news portal page for each continent.

MashUps: I guess Zillow.com calls Google maps for showing address.

Mashups under Web 2.0. I do not know about portals.

Well, I think you're basically starting to figure out why the portal server market is drying up.

Here is and excellent tutorial:
http://www.javacodegeeks.com/2010/10/hello-world-portlet-jboss-portal.html

Try the JBoss bundle to start as it is much easier to use.
JBoss tools 3.2 along with latest Java EE IDE ( Helios) will also.



Thanks
