Towards a Simpler World
By vihangpathak on Dec 15, 2006
If you read my previous blogs, you can relate to the title of this new blog of mine. What it means is,respecting towards its commitment of opensourcing software, the netbeans portal pack is out in public. Isn't that attractive!!!
To what can be said a difficult uphill task to learn how to develop a portlet to boiling down to a mere clicks, isn't that a step towards making things simpler yet significant.
Go visit portalpack.netbeans.org and portlet-container.dev.java.net to really appreciate what I am trying to say!!!
A lightweight portlet container which is so easy to deploy that it takes the fear out of you to develop your portlet applications and deploy them on something that can be called JSR168 compliant.
Coupled with that, offering support is the Netbeans portlet plugin.which reduces portlet development to some clicks away!!!
Though I can blog on lengths about the features of the portlet-container and portlet plugin, its recommended that you check out the following blogs(http://blogs.sun.com/satya/entry/netbeans_portlet_plugin_1_0 ) or (http://blogs.sun.com/deepakg/entry/portlet_container_1_0_beta).
Apart from that, its all opensource!!! Now thats what I call "Towards a simpler world".
