Hello all,
I am a newbie to the world of Portal servers.
It would be very helpful if i can have the following questions answered.
Please note that these are general questions and not specific to Websphere Portal server.
1. Is it required for a Portal to be hosted on a Application Server?
2. Can a Portal Application be independent of an Application server? If a Portal server is chosen, is my Application server already chosen?

3. Can a Portal Application be ported along with Portal server to another Application server?
And most importalnt of all
4. Can a Portal page hosted on a Portal server, show applications which are hosted on some other Application server?

Thank you for your valuable time and support.
Links to any supporting documents on the net will be very helpful.
