CHAPTER 6 Adding Basic User Interface Controls to Your Portlets

User Interface (UI) controls such as text boxes, buttons, and checkboxes are an integral part of any portlet, as they are the means by which people interact with your applications. This chapter discusses how you can expedite the process of adding basic UI controls to portlets via the pre-packaged builders in WebSphere Portlet Factory (WPF). By the end of this chapter, you will be aware of some useful techniques for automating UI development, and you will also have constructed a simple survey form to demonstrate these techniques. The survey form will be surfaced to a portal server as a portlet.
