18.1. The call center application

The application you will build is a call center application. The call center application consists of a page that contain two portlets to list trouble tickets for a customer and view the details of a trouble ticket.

Both portlets are created using Faces (JSF) portlet with prebuilt JavaBean that represent the customers and trouble tickets.

Note: To make the example simple, static data is used instead of accessing a database.
