New Segment of Sun's Open-Source Portal Series: Portlet Repository
Interested in portals and portlets? Be sure to read this brand new article on Sun Developer Network: Open-Source Portal Initiative at Sun, Part 2: Portlet Repository. Among the coauthors are three Sun portal gurus who are key contributors to the initiative.Of note is the conclusion:
The Portlet Repository contributors are committed to a free and open exchange with other portlet sites. No doubt portlets from one site will show up on another in a different form. Ultimately, which site hosts the portlets is immaterial. Success of the Portlet Repository hinges on whether it has helped build a robust portlet library for the community.
If you missed part 1, that's an overviewa succinct summary that describes the objectives, scope, and efforts. Atul Batra, the coauthor, is an articulate, knowledgeable leader of the initiative.
I learned a lot while working on these articles and was awed by all that's underway. What a tremendous horizon for portals and portlets.
