Pinned topic Spring MVC Portlet 3.0 and WebSphere Portal: Deployment Tips/Tricks

‏2010-12-30T21:10:50Z |
Hi all,

We're considering to use Spring MVC Portlet 3.0 with WebSphere Portal 7.0. We're trying to figure out the less painful way to deploy the portlet/portal app to WebSphere Portal 7.0.

Would you guys mind to share your tips and tricks?

So far it looks like the easiest one is to use IBM RAD WebSphere IDE with its "Publish" capability. But we'd like to stay away as much as possible from any IBM specific metadata (xml files).

Is it possible to use a regular Eclipse and configure a runner to publish things to WebSphere Portal (assuming the Portal is always running locally).

Cheers,
Ed

    I'd like to clarify a little bit further.

    There are 2 scenarios we're exploring right now:
    1) Development cycle: write code, compile, run unit-tests, check UI using WebSphere Portal
    2) Deployment to test/production Portal Server

    We'd like to know the deployment strategy for both.

    For #1, we're thinking to run the portlet using GlassFish but there were concerns of why not do it straight in WebSphere Portal.
