            it´s possible to create a new portlet with this IframePortlet ??

              Edit the WEB-INF/portlet-instances.xml file to create the thre instances. Then edit the WEB-INF/iframe-object.xml file to place the three instances on a page. (The JBoss Portal documentation provides instructions on how to do this.)

                  Are you deploying the iframeportlet.war file, or your own war file? If your own war file, did you copy the classes from iframeportlet.war also?

                  If you are still having problems, post the results from:

                  jar -tf your.war

                      You extracted the entire zip file into the deploy directory? You should not have done that - undo!

                      Here are the steps, starting with the downloaded iframe zip file:
                      1) Unzip the iframe zip file into a temporary directory.
                      2) Unpack the iframeportlet.war file into a directory named iframeportlet.war in a temporary location.
                      3) Edit the iframeportlet.war/WEB-INF/portlet-instances.xml and iframeportlet.war/WEB-INF/iframe-object.xmlf files as I indicated in my earlier post.
                      4) Copy the entire iframeportlet.war directory to server/default/deploy
                      5) In your browser, go to the IFrame page.

                      Here is an example portlet-instances.xml file:

                      <?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
                      <deployments>
                       <deployment>
                       <if-exists>overwrite</if-exists>
                       <instance>
                       <instance-id>IFrame1</instance-id>
                       <portlet-ref>IFramePortlet</portlet-ref>
                       </instance>
                       </deployment>
                       <deployment>
                       <if-exists>overwrite</if-exists>
                       <instance>
                       <instance-id>IFrame2</instance-id>
                       <portlet-ref>IFramePortlet</portlet-ref>
                       </instance>
                       </deployment>
                       <deployment>
                       <if-exists>overwrite</if-exists>
                       <instance>
                       <instance-id>IFrame3</instance-id>
                       <portlet-ref>IFramePortlet</portlet-ref>
                       </instance>
                       </deployment>
                      </deployments>


                      and an example iframe-object.xml file:

                      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
                      <deployments>
                       <deployment>
                       <if-exists>overwrite</if-exists>
                       <parent-ref>default</parent-ref>
                       <page>
                       <page-name>IFrame</page-name>
                       <window>
                       <window-name>IFramePortletWindow1</window-name>
                       <instance-ref>IFrame1</instance-ref>
                       <region>center</region>
                       <height>0</height>
                       </window>
                       <window>
                       <window-name>IFramePortletWindow2</window-name>
                       <instance-ref>IFrame2</instance-ref>
                       <region>center</region>
                       <height>1</height>
                       </window>
                       <window>
                       <window-name>IFramePortletWindow3</window-name>
                       <instance-ref>IFrame3</instance-ref>
                       <region>center</region>
                       <height>2</height>
                       </window>
                       </page>
                       </deployment>
                      </deployments>

                          The portlet-ref found in portlet-instances.xml must match the portlet name specified in portlet.xml.

                          Have you read the documentation? Everything you have asked so far is covered there.
