Part 2 of this series covered the latest additions to the URL generation capabilities for themes, skins, and portlets in IBM WebSphere Portal Version 6 which provides ways to link together different components. In this part, you see how to address a common requirement of many WebSphere Portal applications; that is, you see how to define a task flow to tie together application components. Simply sending an event or a parameter to another component is frequently not sufficient; sometimes, you need to model how work flows among the various components. Composite Application Workflow is a tool that you can use to design and run workflows in a WebSphere Portal environment. This article introduces its primary capabilities and shows how to implement and use a simple workflow.

You need to have a basic understanding of portal, portlets and workflow concepts to understand this article.
