Portlet frameworks

I had a pleasant experience working with Spring portlet mvc, on Liferay and IBM Portal platforms. Spring portlet mvc really understands portlet states of renderRequest and actionRequest.

I was wondering if there are any other portlet specific web frameworks.

Also, do you know if Liferay wants/will use Spring portlet mvc?

Hi Mercer:

Of course, it does. Live sites: - using Spring MVC portlets.

Portlets in Plugins SDK can make use of any application framework that Liferay supports, for example,
JSF, JSP, Rubby, Lazzlo, PHP, JSON, Hibernate, DAO, Spring MVC, Struts, Tapestry,
Wicket, Python, LAR (Liferay Archive), and so on. Therefore, if the work has nothing
related to extension and customization of the out of the box portlets, you should use
Plugins SDK environment. (Abstracted from Chapter 3)
