Container Runtime Options

I just stumbled upon this article on TheServerSide.com. The author has nicely explained "container runtime option" feature of Portlet 2.0 specification. During the draft phase of Portlet 2.0 specification, OpenPortal Portlet Container team blogged on many of JSR 286 features on PortalPost. You can find about all the new features in this blog.

Coming back to the TSS article, the good point to note is that author has used OpenPortal portlet container to explore Portlet 2.0 features. If you are associated with Portlet technology since beginning, you might be knowing that Pluto used to be de-facto container for JSR 168 portlet development. But, after open sourcing of Sun's portlet container implementation and hosting it as sub project of OpenPortal at https://portlet-container.dev.java.net, it has gained lot of momentum. Here are the things that I like about OpenPortal portlet container:

1. Fully compliant JSR 286 implementation
2. Easy installation on Glassfish and Tomcat.
3. Easy  deployment/un-deployment of Portlets
4. Good tooling support for Netbeans and Eclipse.
5. Last but not least, OpenSource and FREE :)

The author at TSS has provided link for download page of App Platform SDK, which is a GF + Portlet Container + WSRP bundle. If you already have Glassfish install, you can download Portlet Container 2.0 binary and deploy it on GF in secs. So, happy portlet writing.
