Hi Jonas,
I've been developing for WebSphere Portal for at least a number of years now and I have only gotten as far as setting up Liferay and clicking around a bit.

Other than price.... can you provide the features or advantages (and disdvantages) of using Liferay over something like WebSphere Portal? Or provide a link that has a comparison chart?

I think it would be prudent of us to provide our clients with an open source alternative but I've got to be able to convince them that they'll get as much as they would with a "purchased" solution.

Thanks,
Hasdy

One of the key benefits of WPS is the 'supposed' interconnectivity of WebSphere Portal Server with all of those other IBM products that are floating about. You know, the Lotus Notes type stuff that doesn't always play well with others.

I'm sure the latest LifeRay would kick the latest WPS full released product's behind, as IBM is typically slow to catch up on all the latest trends. Having said that, WPS 7 will be out soon. A good friend of mine, Sal Pece, is doing some articles about WPS 7 at TSS if you were so inclined. (Evaluating WebSphere Portal 7)

By the way, Jonas, good work on the latest book!
