Tools Tip: Portlet Application Wizard Changed in NetBeans 6.0.
By uchithra on Jul 26, 2007
If you where using NetBeans 5.5 previously and then switched to the new NetBeans 6.0 Milestone 10 version, don't be surprised if you don't find the “Portlet Application” option while creating a New Project (after installing the portlet plugin from http://portalpack.netbeans.org/)
In NetBeans 6.0 the Portlet Application is part of the “Web Application”. So what you need to do is to create a “Web Application” and in the wizard under the Frameworks panel select “Portlet Support” to create a Portlet Application.
