Documentation on the Community Feature

Documentation on the Portal Server community features, community services, and community sample portal is available in the Sun Java System Portal Server 7.1 Update 1 Community Guide.

In prior releases, this guide was titled Sun Java System Portal Server Community Sample Guide. In the 7.1 Update 1 release, the title as well as the structure of the guide has been changed.

The Community Features section discusses how to manage communities, set up community templates, and customize Sun Java Web user Interface Theme.

The Community Services section discusses how to deploy and configure the various portlets (such as Wiki Portlet, Surveys Portlet etc.) and includes documentation on the Portlet Application Framework.

The Community Sample Portal section provides an overview of the Community Sample portal and areas of customizations to the Community Sample portal UI.

Documentation on Customizing the Portal Desktop

 

Portal Server document collection had a title called Desktop Customization Guide. During Portal Server 7.0 release, the document collection was reorganized and consolidated.

Someone recently asked why such a useful guide was dropped. No, the content was not dropped.

The new improved version is called Portal Server Developer Sample Guide.

Guide for configuring single sign-on with Java ES 5 communications services

Questions about configuring single sign-on(SSO) with Java ES 5's communications services products (i.e.,  Messaging Server, Calendar server, Communications Express) are very common on the portal's discussion boards. While it is quite easy to configure SSO, it involves a number of manual steps and is hence error prone.

One of the guides that I constantly refer to and also point others when they are struggling with SSO is the Java ES 5 communications services deployment example for a single host. This guide explains configuration of the related components of the Java ES 5 stack. If you already have the communications products installed and configured for SSO then you can directly skip to the section that discusses configuration of the portal's communications channels.

The guide provides only the quick and easy information that you need to get things working. For more detailed information about the communications channels check out the Portal Configuration Guide.
