Using Glassfish with Portal Server

Hi, my team members and I have been looking over the OpenPortal project as a possible solution for a portal server. However we've found the application much larger than what we need. The PCs that will be running the program may not be very fast, so we'd like to be able to build a 'lightweight' version of Portal Server for use with Glassfish. Specifically, we'd like to include just the portlet container, WSRP container and web server components of the program. Is it possible/feasible to pull this off?

This might be better posed at a forum for Portal Server developers, but I couldn't find one. Any advice offered would be much appreciated.

The OpenPortal project is attempting to build an Enterprise Portal platform that involves integrations with a lot of applications. Due to this it has a lot of dependencies and also requires lots of memory and CPU resources.

If you are looking for a lightweight Portal application the following are the OSS projects that you would be interested in:

These are sub projects for the OpenPortal Project and are completely standalone.
Just build these workspaces, install the WSRP binaries on to the Portlet Container install.
i.e follow the regular install instructions for WSRP project and you have light weight webtop running JSR 286 and WSRP 2.0.

BTW both these run best on GFV2
