Chapter 6. Portlet development and deployment 233
Not to worry, at this stage there were undoubtedly missing JAR files and since we
would work with only half of the project, the Web application WAR, we decided to
filter them out by selecting Filter Tasks->On selected resource only as seen in
Figure 6-43.

Our next step was to create the Portlet Application project in Application
Developer by switching to a Portlet perspective, then right-clicking in the
Navigator frame and selecting New -> Project -> Portlet application project
as seen in Figure 6-44 on page 234.

Figure 6-44 Creating a Portlet application project
Figure 6-45 on page 235 shows the settings we provided to define our Portlet
project which we decided to call TraderPortlet. After entering the project’s
settings we clicked on Finish since we did not want Application Developer to add
portlets for us, because we will use the TraderWeb.war Web application as our
base for a portlet.

After clicking on Finish, Application Developer creates and populates the project
for us as shown in Figure 6-46 on page 236.

Next we added TraderWeb.war to the project by clicking on the TraderPortlet
project name and selecting File -> Import -> WAR file, as shown in Figure 6-47
on page 237.
