I have few queries on GateIn, like:
Does it have tagging, blog, wiki, forum supports?
It isn't the goal of GateIn, the portal is a platform, the aggregation platform to have applications sit on top. We don't provide applications directly but through partners, eXo Platform (co-author of the portal) provide such applications (Social, Calendar, Webmail, Forum/FAQ, CMS/DMS...) that will run on top of GateIn and EPP (For now they run on top of eXo portal which has been merged with JBoss Portal to create GateIn).
You can see their portfolio here:
The maintainer of JBoss Forums who is a contributor has plans to migrate this application to GateIn.
Can it consume gwt widgets?
If you are talking about this:
http://gwt-widget.sourceforge.net/ it hasn't been tested.
If you are talking about Google Gadgets:
http://www.google.com/ig/directory?synd=open those are supported
If you are talking about GWT portlets
It would need some testing and probably some work, contributions are welcome ;)
Does it have any audio, video chat portlet support?
Again we don't provide applications directly
Does it have any media streaming support?
It's not a concern for the portal itself or it depends on the needs.
Note that GateIn sits on an application server (or servlet container) so anything at this level can be done the same way. The portal itself generates a view (HTML/Ajax usually)
Does it have XML+XSL presentation support?
A portal usually supports various web frameworks, depends what you have in mind. There is no native support if that's what you ask.
I hope you guys can help me out.
I hope I did
you have really dragged me out from confusion zone.
We want to buy everything through Red Hat because this allows us to have one single contact and systems management. We want to buy a complete Portal / WCM / ECM system through Red Hat by a press of a button. Total online shopping experience.
Its absolutely ok to OEM exo products and sell them through the Red Hat sales channel.
More details will come during 2010, promised
So any idea when EPP will start shipping with GateIn instead of JBoss portal? EPP 5?
May is the target for EPP5 which will be based on GateIn
