CHAPTER 1 Introduction to WebSphere Portlet Factory

This chapter explains basic portal concepts (such as what portals and portlets are), and introduces the fundamentals of portlet development using WebSphere Portlet Factory (WPF). By the end of the chapter, you will have a working Hello World! portlet and you will understand the basic concepts and techniques required to build, deploy, and test portlets using WPF. This chapter is intended for WPF newcomers, but those who are interested in brushing up on the basics of WPF should also find something of interest in it. If you already feel confident using WPF, feel free to skip ahead to any of the later chapters—you can always come back to this chapter if you need to.
