Content Management\Portal

I looked at the facts page on portals, but I have some questions.

I am looking for a Content Management\Portal system that is JEE based. JBoss Portal looked appealing, but it seems to have been replaced. So I don't know how stable that project is.

Some features I need are:
-Easy to install and configure
-From a portal manager standpoint, not so complex and feature rich that it has a huge learning curve, but not so canned with wizards that it’s completely inflexible. The user is good with HTML and JavaScript, but not JEE development. I will handle that.
-Is well recognized as a reliable, stable system in the industry and has a decent sized install base.
-Is not expensive.

Any suggestions?

Portals just never took off the way they were supposed to. The one I still hear about from time to time is Liferay, so that's worth looking into. I've never used it myself though.
