Sun Portal Server Training at Chennai

I just got back to Bangalore last night, after concluding a training session on Sun Java System Portal Server at Chennai. Though we do have a standard five day course on Sun Portal Server, based on an old version, the customer had an urgent need to gear up their skill sets on newer version of the product, prompting us to customize our standard program by introducing an approximate two day content on Portal Server 7.2, the most recent Sun Portal Server version, developed based on OpenPortal project.

For me, it was engaging to first discuss the fundamentals of Portal Server using the standard course materials and then use a handout, prepared locally, to discuss the installation and configuration of Portal Server 7.2 on Glassfish v2, introduce the audience to the OpenPortlet Portlet Container project as well as the PortletPack used as plugins in Nebeans 6.1 IDE and finally concluding the discussion by installing WebSynergy Milestone 3 the next generation Portal Server from Sun, released on 31st October 2008. I sincerely hope that the discussions help all folks in picture below to go out and execute their project with minimal roadblocks.



Preparing the hand out for this session was tiring, time consuming, but was enriching. I express my heart-felt gratitude to all the bloggers on Portal technology, whose blog posts came in very handy for me in completing the process just in time. I know there must be someone out there who would be wanting to get a text book installation of Portal Server 7.2 done on Glassfish and might be wandering around the world of Internet trying to fetch detailed note on the installation procedure. For all of such souls, I have uploaded an extract from my handout that details on the installation and configuration procedure of Portal 7.2 on Glassfish. If interested, download it from here.

Tea Time Quiz

Very recently, I got an iPod Touch. I don't think it needs any mentioning here about how cool that device is. Now, if you wanna get hold of one of those amazingly cool stuff from Apple, then you might want to give a try at Netbeans fun tech quiz starting this week (open only for residents of India). If not iPod touch, may be you might find yourself lucky to walk away with some other cool electronic gadgets. Go, give it a try; good luck.
