Hi I'm developing on JSF2 platform, and I would like to know if using portlets in my application is something that i should even consider?


If yes, for what purposes?

Hi,

There should be a business case for deciding on whether you should use portlets or not. Typically, if you are aggregating content from multiple information sources, then it makes sense to use portlets.

If you are a JSF 2 developer, you can still use your JSF 2 skill to develop a portlet by using a Portlet Bridge for JSF 2. Chapter 14 of Portlets in Action contains an example JSF 2 portlet, which makes use of portletfaces portlet bridge. You can download the example from here: http://code.google.com/p/portletsinaction/downloads/list
