This article series examines the JSR 168 portlet container available in IBM WebSphere Application Server V6.1 and differentiates its use from WebSphere Portal.

Part 1 introduced the portlet container, including how to install a portlet, how to access the portlet, and how to use URL Addressability.

Part 2 illustrates some extended capabilities of the container including how to render a portlet within a window frame, how to display multiple portlets, how to get information about deployed portlets, and how to change the default portlet behaviour.

You can download example code and use it to see the features of the WebSphere Application Server V6.1 portlet container.

This series is for Java™ portlet programmers who are already familiar with the Java Portlet API. See Resources for links to information that can help you gain those skills.
