Hi,
Would like to know any competent framework for that can be used with JSR 286 portlets in JBoss. JSF will not be used in this particular case study.

Thanks and Regards

you can explore Spring Framework.
Spring Framework 3.0.1 has a support for JSR 286 portlets.

Have a look here

hope that helps.

Well the application under consideration here will have no forms, neither will it access any database. It will rather get data from various WS as XML and display the data on screen. There is no transaction involved , and even if it has to go that route it has to go the XML over the wire way.

In that respect would not a Spring MVC be quite heavy because we could leverage the portlet as a controller and from there on just send the call to the ws tier, get the data and display it on front end using light weights like JSON etc?

However to incorporate the bare minimum so that exception handling, localization and other aspects a framework would be helpful....Any pointers to this would be great

well in this case, i would suggest to create custom portlet framework, make use of design pattern as per your need and that would also be easy to manage.



Thanks
