WebSynergy & Portal Pack at Devoxx'08

I attended this year's Devoxx conference which was held between 8th - 12th Dec at Antwerp, Belgium. This was my first trip to Devoxx conference and also to Belgium. I got an opportunity to talk about WebSynergy and Portal Pack  in a 30 min session. It was mostly driven by the demos around WebSynergy and Portal Pack. I covered different kind of Portlet Developments using NetBeans and Portal Pack plug-ins.


Devoxx was definitely a success. It's one of the biggest Java Community Conference in Europe.


There were some very good talks on JavaFX, JRuby, Flex, JBoss Seam. The videos of all those sessions of Devoxx'08 will be available at http://parleys.com/  sometime during Jan' 09.

Portal Pack 3.0 Milestone 2 is now available

The Portal Pack 3.0 M2 is now available for download. These plug-ins are supported on NetBeans 6.5 Beta or later. 


Highlights of the new features added in this release are :



  • Integration with Project WebSynergy M3 running on Glassfish V2 and recently released Glassfish V3 Prelude

  • Integration with Liferay Portal Server running on Glassfish V2/V3 and Tomcat 5.x/6.x

  • Support for Spring MVC Portlet : Using this plug-in, user can develop a portlet using spring webmvc portlet framework.

  • Service Builder Plug-in : This plug-in provides liferay/websynergy's service builder capabilities inside NetBeans IDE. Using this plug-in, user can generate and use services inside their portlets created by NetBeans Portal Pack. This plug-in also helps developer to write a database portlet quickly using service builder infrastructure. User can modify a service xml either through standard xml editor or through advance design editor for service xml.

  • WebSynergy/Liferay Taglib Palette : A new jsp palette has been added to help developer to use WebSynergy/Liferay specific taglibs inside their JSPs. Currently it supports all Journal taglibs through this palette.  But all other WebSynergy/Liferay specific taglibs are also exposed to the portlets, so that user can add them manually to their jsp code.

Tutorial: JSR 286 portlet Eventing using Eventing Story Board

The recently released Portal Pack 2.0 has a new feature called Eventing StoryBoard.The Eventing StoryBoard feature in Portal Pack 2.0 simplifies the task of creating portlet application that uses JSR-286 eventing. It provides a simple drag drop feature to link the portlets involved in eventing. Automatic code generation functionality in the storyboard adds the necessary interfaces, methods and xml elements needed during eventing.

Here's a tutorial  contributed by Sriram K,  which explains about JSR 286 eventing using Eventing StoryBoard
