Cross-Platform Inter-Widget communication Demo @ JavaONE 2008

JavaONEProjectWebSynergy, will redifine the term portal. It will be a widget platform and will natively support other programming and web technologies, like Ruby and PHP. Java, Ruby and PHP widgets not only co-exist on a portal page, but also inter-communicate. And all this is made so easy using Portal Pack NetBeans plugins.

For more on this, read here. But wait..., if seeing is believing, visit us at the JavaONE 2008 booth if you are in San Francisco or the Bay area.

Yahoo Suggest and Search Portlet in Portlet-Repository

Another addition to the porlet-repository is the Suggest and Search Portlet . It is a JSR286 portlet that provides search related suggestions as the user types words and search results  from the web (using Ajax and serveResource)based on Yahoo Contextual Search and  Yahoo Web Search Service API.  The portlet makes REST client calls to the services, parses the results in XML /JSON format and displays them to the user. 

This has been tested on the Open Source Portlet Container 2.0. Check this blog post and  the wiki page for more details.

WSRP version 2.0 milestone 1 binary now available

The Open Portal WSRP Project has recently released the milestone 1 binary of WSRP version 2.0 implementation. The same is available for download here. Here is the link to the install and user guide for this milestone.
  1. Install Instructions
  2. User Guide
The WSRP version 2.0 milestone 1 release is the first release from the OpenPortal WSRP Project that implements the OASIS WSRP version 2.0 specification. The main intent of this release is to provide a base platform for developers to build optional and additional features that are defined in the WSRP version 2.0 specification and demonstrate to WSRP users the basic usecases of using both the versions.

Technically since all the major features of the WSRP version 2.0 specification are defined optional, we already have a WSRP version 2.0 implementation, by just porting the version 1.0 implementation to 2.0 schema's and claim version 2.0 compliance. However to have a meaningful version 2.0 implementation, the optional features are required to be implemented. The OpenPortal WSRP Project addresses/implements these optional features in the subsequent milestone. Please check the WSRP version 2.0 Project page for more details.

So what exactly is there in this release ?
  1. Provides a base v2 implementation by porting v1 implementation to v2 schema's.
  2. Provides both version 2.0 and version 1.0 WSRP Producer implementation.
  3. Supports sharing of resources like registration-handle/portlet-handle across v1 and v2 WSRP Producer services.
  4. Provides both version 1.0 and 2.0 implementation of Consumer.
  5. Provides the necessary administrative interface to create a v1 or v2 Consumer.
  6. Supports backward compatibility by supporting both v1 and v2 stacks.

Note : The code base uses OASIS WSRP public review 04 schema to demonstrate the above

Stay tuned for future announcements on optional feature implementation, Please subscribe to  announce@wsrp.dev.java.net

OpenPortal @ FOSS- 1st Day

From Left : Vihang, Deepak, Ganesh, Sandeep, Mahipal

 OpenPortal campaign @ Foss.IN's first day started with a bang at Bangalore. It was very well
received by the developer community. The BoF sessions were a hit which is evident from the fact that 2-3 BoF sessions needed to be conducted parallely.
OpenPortal team also gave a handout of all community projects under the OpenPortal umbrella. It also made a well-crafted survey received eagerly by the developer community. On the first day itself, we were able to collect around 80-90 responses.

Sandeep explaining portal fundas.The survey responses were very positive and almost everyone had something or the other to look forward to from Portal and wanted to at the least become an observer.

 BoF's gave a wonderful way of interacting with the community.

 

Vihang explaing about portal and collecting the surveysThe enthusiasm received re-affirms the fact that the developer community and the market in general has been awaiting a cutting-edge Enterprise level OpenSource Portal Server.

Now FOSS.IN moves to penultimate day where we are trying our best to maintain the momentum.

OpenSSO and Liferay integration

You may ask, "Why are you blogging about it here?". Well...isn't open source all about being open, collaborative and helping each other? OpenPortal Portal Server tightly integrates with Access Manager and leverages all (well almost!) of its features. It so happened that I was investigating into pluggable SSO for OpenPortal and ended up writing an auth filter as a prototype. Recently noticed that Liferay integrates with CAS using an auth filter. So thought why not try this with OpenSSO. You can read a rather lengthy blog here if you care about the details.
