Hey, you should be using 'JBoss Portal', then you could post here ;)
In the meantime if you want to know more about Jetspeed, you should really ask on *their* forum, not here...
Sorry, I didn't realize that jetspeed2/JBoss-5.0.x.GA question should only be asked at "their" forum -- whatever that means. But what if at "their" forum, someone, also, only sees the "JBoss" in my question and consequently suggest that I take my question to the JBoss forum? Sorry (again), I didn't realize that JBoss-5.0.x.GA is an application system, which runs both JBoss and non-JBoss applications.
"JBoss Portal" is a portal framework, a competitor of Jetspeed.
If you have an issue to install an accessory on your car, who will you call ? Here you are calling another accessory maker who won't be able to help
Now would you call the accessory maker or the car maker ? The accessory maker will be more likely to help since he's the one making sure his article will fit most cars.
So in this case, the application server is generic, the portal sits on top of an application server. Jetspeed claims support for JBoss AS up to 4 http://wiki.apache.org/portals/Jetspeed2/JBossHowTo, so the people who will more likely be able to help are people @ jetspeed.
Was trying to save you time and save this forum from noise. (Again a forum is a knowledge base if maintained properly)
Perhaps, you didn't read my initial entry as well as it was intended to be read: I have already done a bit of reading -- including the "JBossHowTo" -- during my initial research. And I thought on a "JBoss Portal" forum (Indeed the most likely place), I might find someone who might have also used or sampled jetspeed2 with JBoss-5.0.x.GA to share their experiences with a fellow JBossAS user.
The point to note about the "accessory and car" analogy is that JBoss made the car, and so, it is legitimate to ask drivers of [JBoss] cars about their experiences of using other non-JBoss accessories? Further, your irritations would be understanding if the question was wholly about jetspeed2, but on the contrary, it is about jetspeed2 AND JBoss-5.0.x.GA.
Anyway thanks, while I move on!
