Methods for resetting IBM WebSphere Portal portlet views

This article explains how to reset portlet views with multiple frameworks (Java Specification Request, IBM Web Content Manager, and JavaServer Faces), along with examining how the theme impacts the process and can be used to reset the state. Also, we examine how the various themes (Portal standard, Portalweb2, PB2) can be modified to achieve the desired results.
