Portal application (IBM)
IBM i Access for Web provides an IBM portal application that runs in a portal environment, such as WebSphere® Portal.
The portal application can provide access to IBM i resources on multiple systems. Each portlet on a page can access IBM i resources on a different system. If a portlet appears on a page multiple times, each instance of the portlet can access a different system.
Web serving environment
The combination of an HTTP server and a portal server, such as WebSphere Portal, provides the Web serving environment for the portal application provided by IBM i Access for Web. The HTTP server receives client HTTP requests from a browser and routes them to the portal environment for processing.
For the most current list of supported portal environments, refer to the Web page for IBM i Access for Web. This page will be updated with information about any additional Portal environments supported.
