2006: Year of J2EE portals
I am pretty sure that this year will witness a lot of significant developments in the area of J2EE portals.
The Portlet 2.0 spec (JSR 286) has been kicked off after an impasse of more than 2 years. The Portlet 2.0 EG promises to deliver an early public draft very soon followed by a public draft by mid 2006 and a final version by end of 2006.
The WSRP 2.0 spec is also expected to finalize this year.
With both key specifications in portal land undergoing a major revision this year, we bound to see a lot of action.
So stay tuned !
