This hands-on workbook guides you through learning how to develop portlets using the Java™ Standard Portlet API (JSR 168). In addition to getting practice using the basic API, you learn about the issues and challenges associated with portlet development. With this foundation, you can see how the frameworks can help you.
You learn the concepts of portlet development by developing a working example. Along the way, you learn what you are doing and why so that you can truly gain an understanding of what is being accomplished and why certain approaches and decisions were chosen. Portlet code is provided for each chapter so that, if you do get stuck, you can refer to the solution for that topic area. So, immerse yourself in portlet development, and work at your own pace.
