I have heard the name ‘Portal framework’ in many places. But I don’t know what it is. Tell me what a portal framework is and give me some examples for portal frameworks in java.

I believe this includes JSF 2+, Spring 3+ (Spring MVC) and Liferay have their own light proprietary MVCPortlet framework.
