Hi everyone,
I'm going to prepare for a WebSphere Portal Developer exam. In terms of techonlogy itself, I think it's not too difficult. The biggest difficulty for me, I think , is how I can get a Websphere Portal developing and test environment. I have all this intalled on my office computer, but it's almost impossible for me to make some time to study in the office. I need this test environment on my home computer.I tried to negotiate with our system administrator who keeps the CDs, but didn't convince him.

I know there are some free Portlets containers available, but since the exam is IBM Websphere specific, there are a lot of specific details about IBM Websphere Portal.

Anybody have ideas?

Thank you very much!

don't most of the IBM Press books come with a trial version of the product they are about? It may be worth spending the cash on the official study guide for the exam you are taking if so.

I've ordered a book "Mastering IBM WebSphere Portal Server", and there's no description on that online bookstore mentioning it will come with a Trial version product. And on IBM official website, I did't see any trial version downloads about Websphere Portal. ( I remember they did have downloads for Trial version Websphere).

If it's impossible to get a free Websphere Portal( including Trial or Evaluation version), does anybody know how to build a development and test environment with only open source products.

Thanks.
