I've this problem too.
What technology can we use to develop a new portlet?
Is there the chance to use Seam to develop a porlet?
Thanks in advance.
P.S.: Sorry for my english :-(
To customize the portal ...
Thanks so much, PeterJ!
Nothing to do to develop a new portlet, manage it with a tool (eclipse)?
according to 18.104.22.168 section in JBossPortalreferenceGuide.pdf we must edit jsp portal-core.war/WEB-INF/jsp/header/ to obtain personalization of header... Now i'm working on...
The JBoss Portal docs give a simple tutorial on developing portlets. A also have another resource, but it is not free. I can provide the URL if you like.
As far as using Eclipse goes, I simply include the portal JAR files in the libraries for my project. But then, I tend to use Eclipse as just a glorified text editor.

Yes, please, maybe my company can provide me some $ to buy it!
The book JBoss in Action (http://www.manning.com/jamae) contains two chapters in JBoss Portal. The first is a tutorial on developing a portlet using JSPs. (Sorry, but I did not have enough space to cover JSF/Struts/Seam/Wicket/Tapestry/Grails/your-favorite-framework-here). The second chapter goes into portal administration topics, and ends with constructing a custom portal (my JBossWorld presentation was based on this).
Another book, which is older but free, I also found helpful was http://www.manning.com/hepper/. It doesn't use JBoss Portal, but the information on writing porltets is decent.
