About WebSphere Portlet Factory
WebSphere Portlet Factory is a tool for rapidly building portlets on top of a service-oriented architecture, including WebSphere Portal environments. Developers can quickly and easily leverage their company's core assets by automatically assembling them into custom, high-value portlets. Portlets created with WebSphere Portlet Factory are dynamic, robust Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications that react automatically to change. Business users can modify them in real time to meet changing business requirements without requiring any coding, duplicating, or versioning of assets. By eliminating the need to code all of these implementations and their variations, WebSphere Portlet Factory simplifies the development, deployment, and change management processes.
This article describes the capabilities of WebSphere Portlet Factory, steps through examples of creating portlets, and tells how to use various features to accomplish specific development tasks.
