          First, it would help to know specifically what problem you have run into.

          Second, since 2.6 is a beta, the documentation is also beta. Since you are just now learning the portal, it might be better to start with 2.4.1. The documentation for that is very good. Once yo understand the concepts, and have worked with portlets in 2.4.1, you can then try 2.6 again, many of the concepts are the same.

            thanx for your valuable comment Peter.. i would certainly do as u say... i would like to know one more thing..

            i m able to create a portal using the admin console.. of JBOSS PORTAL.
            but i m not able to figure out where is the relative files of the portal stored in the JBOSS portal/server/deploy/...

            does the files are stored in incrypted fashion like .sar or something else...

            i know this might be a funny question before knowing the actual concept of the JBOSS portal... wat to do, i m in a scenario i have to deliver than improving the knowledge of JBOSS portal.. i think, u would have got the picture of wat i m trying to say...

            once again thanks for your comments and i hope we continue to interact in this constructive fashion further..

              There are no files stored anywhere to define the portal you created using the Management Portlet. All such information is stored in the database. Also, the files *-object.xml and portlet-instances.xml are only used to input data into the database, after which the data is read from the database (hence the appearance of the < if-exists > tag in those files to indicate on a restart of the portal whether the data in the files is to overwrite what is in the database, or the data in the database is to be kept as is).
