For those who want to take a closer look at the building blocks of Portal Server and the technology that powers this wonderful product, there is a very handy document in the Portal Server 7.1 document collection.
This will give a fair idea to someone who wants to evaluate Portal
Server prior to installing and testing the product. The Sun Java System Portal Server 7.1 Technical Overview explains quickly the major features Portal Server.

Back in January 07, we started a project to support EMC Documentum
Enterprise Content Management Portlets in Sun Java System Portal
Server 7.1. The portlets in Content Management and Web Publisher
pre-packaged Web Development Kit (WDK) components that include Java
server pages, Java classes, and XML files. These portlets provide core
content management and content services for creating, viewing, submitting and publishing various types of content.
eRoom portlets provide a dashboard view into EMC Documentum eRoom
and offer the ability to manage multiple project eRooms.
ECI Services portlet is built using ECI Services framework with
adapters to search various repositories, databases and and web sites.

I 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.

Coordination remains one of the most talked about topics with respect to portlets. And one of the popular means of enabling portlet coordination is via the event model.
The Eventing (also referred to as Inter-Portlet Communication) feature in the Sun Java System Portal Server as well as the decoupled Portlet Container component built out of the OpenPortal community now has tools support in the form of an IPC Story Board feature in the NetBeans Portal Pack.
Also note that the upcoming new versions of the Portal Standards, Portlet 2.0 (JSR286) and
WSRP 2.0, will provide support for portlet coordination through more than one mechanism including events. Support for those will also similarly make it's way into the Portal Pack.

The Desktop Design Tool will be an easy to use tool for portal administrators to
design and customize a portal page's layout and theme.
To give a preview of this upcoming feature, I have recorded a screencast that shows how this tool can be used for adding new content, changing the layout of the page by rearranging tabs and channels, and finally, changing the theme of the page.
Check out the screencast here -- Portal Desktop Design Tool Screencast
