Hi,


i was wondering whether igoogle was based on portlets
It pretty looks like it is, but on their api-documentation, they say that their gadgets are using html + javascript / ajax and so on.
So im not sure anymore, if i could cite igoogle as a portlet based website ?

If not, does anyone know a rather well known website that is based on portlets that you could cite as an example website?



Thanks in advance for any hints

I think google uses mashups and heavy Google Web Toolkit technology.

But indeed, this is the experience a portal provides. When I'm selling portal, I often talk about the 'facebook' type of experience, where you have many different content spots that aggregate together to create a common experience. Facebook isn't written in Java or JSR168, but that's really the idea the portal promise has been going for, and it can certainly be delivered with JSR286 portlet technology.

So, go ahead and use that as an example as a portal, because that's exactly the type of user experience a portal framework promises.
