Portal Server at Sun TechDays in Mexico

Sun Tech Days 2006-2007I had the pleasure of giving a talk on Portal Performance and our AJAX desktop at the Sun Tech Days event in Mexico last month.  You can download the presentation from the Mexico event site, it was part of Track 1.
 

All of the Tech Days events are very highly recommended for all developers and cover quite a wide spectrum of technologies.  But it just so happens that the portal talk fit in perfectly.  Because after talking about NetBeans and WebServices and features of the Java language I had a chance to say, this is how it all comes together. And, by the way, everything that I talked about you can download, install and start developing your portlets.  And, yes, we have this all integrated with NetBeans. 

I usually don't have too much trouble speaking in front of an audience, but speaking in front of developers is always a challenge.  That is even more so when 300 to 400 people show up.  But, fortunately the talk was well received and I was still answering questions half hour after I finished. I had the greatest time and my thanks go out to the Sun Tech Days event organizers in Mexico and to all the attendees.

It truly is wonderful to have a chance to show off your work and my experience shows that when we show Portal Server to developers, we all win.

Introducing Eventing Plugin with Netbeans and OpenPortal

 

The OpenPortal Portlet Container provides a custom way to perform eventing between portlets. I have created a NetBeans plugin  demonstrated in the EventingDemo which depicts how easy it is to write portlets which generate and consume events.

The NetBeans plugin with the upcoming Netbeans 6 release, makes it easy to drag and drop the Java code for the portlet to generate/receive events. It also introduces appropriate XML entries in the custom xml file required by the Portlet Container.

Have a look!!!
