I suggest you get a copy of Sun java Studio creator 2 ea 2 and a copy of sun java studio enterprise 8 , both of them are free and support portlet development . JSC has WYSIWYG and good support for developing portlet based on jsr-168 by using jsf and jsf portlet bridge.

JSC test portlets on pluto which is RI of Portlet and portal spec. you can use pluto for your learning purpose and then you could deploy your portlet ove one of more advanced portal like liferay StringBeans Exoplatform which all of them are open source and jsr-168 .... compatible.
Now I have IBM portal server, WSAD and our company's portal framework on my machine. I don't want to use this framework. Please give me links that exaplin how to start portlet developement with IBM portal server and WSAD...

This doesn't hold true with websphere Portal server 5.1. RAD 6.0 can be used to develop JSP-168 prtlet and deployment on WPS 5.1. WPS 5.0 didn't support JSP 168 portlet API's and used to have IBM's Proprietary prtlet API's.
