    Embedding Portlets in JSF pages

    ric1607 Newbie

      Hello,

      I just saw that Oracle released a product to embed portlets in plain JSF pages.
      This is great since it does not force to have a portal template page, which is not very flexible. It is especially very difficult to convert an existing JSP webapp to a portal architecture.

      See the following link:
      http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/jdev/viewlets/1013/jsfwithportlets_viewlet_swf.html

      Do you plan such an extension? This would be really great!!!

      Have a nice day,

      --Eric

          Cool, this is a JSF component that is consuming WSRP portlets. It shouldn;t be hard to do with our WSRP implementation.

          A nice project for a motivated person ! Any volunteer ? we do the hosting :)

          By the way, it won't help you convert a JSP webapp to a portal architecture since it's the other way around. Embed an existing portlet into your JSF webapp.

          Thanks for the link, i hope someone will jump in to create that component.

            Hello Thomas,

            Thanks for your reply!
            It looks exciting to see it shouldn't be hard.

            If I understand it well, it is a JSF component that connects through web services to a "WSRP" (Web Services for Remote Portlets) provider
            [For dummies like me, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WSRP].

            Can we use *any* JSR-168 portlet this way? Or is there some limitations?

            That's what I meant. Thank you for turning it the right way {;-)
