Hello,

I have a need to create a portal project in WebLogic and deploy it onto a WebSphere Portal Server. I wanted to know if this is possible and if so how to do it.

Thanks,
Jim

Hello Jim,
I don't think it is possible...Weblogic Portal uses Weblogic Portal & Workshop extensions to build the portal application so the bundle is not portable to another Application Server.
The same is true for a portal created with Websphere Application Developer (or RSA).
In general, all the commercial portal container are useful only if you are inentioned to use their proprietary facilities...the main advantage is that in this way you can increase tremendously your development speed (please try to build a portal with Workshop : it's very very easy!) but on the other hand you are relying on proprietary and not standard features...

Hope it helps...

Best regards

Andrea,

Thanks for the reply. Based on additional readings for Weblogic, features like entitlements (the ability to determine the access the user has to portal resources) (ibm calls this Personalization) have tremendous database access/manipulations behind it. I believe this only adds to reasons why it couldn't work: proprietary solutions. Would you agree?

Thanks,Jim
