Using creator for portlets; JSR 168 & Tapestry
From elevator hacks to something more connected to my work.I was recently asked to create a quick presentation on how to use the Sun Java Studio Creator 2 to create JSR 168 portlets.
You might find it useful too. You can check it out here: Quick' n Easy Portlets using the Sun Java Studio Creator 2 ( I used wink to create the demo. It's an awesome tool !)
Portlets built using Creator 2 are JSF based. Creator 2 also bundles Pluto,
the JSR 168 reference implementation. Pluto is used as the runtime to test the portlets.
Creator 2 certainly looks promising for portlet development. You can download Creator currently in Early Access from here: Sun Java Studio Creator
Recently Howard M. Lewis Ship, the creator of Jakarta Tapestry , brought to my attention that Tapestry 4.0 has incorporated full native support for JSR 168 portlets . Have not tried it out myself, but from the docs and some tidbits I got from Howard, looks like a neat implementation. Tapestry 4.0 is currently in a late beta stage. You can get it from the Tapestry site
