  • You can see a list of the deployed portlets in the Services tab under WebSynergy node inside your NetBeans IDE
  • Undeploy a portlet directly from the NetBeans IDE
  • Create PHP/Ruby Portlet which can be deployed on the WebSynergy. Ruby portlet development support is not currently available for download. But it will be available soon.
