JSR168 Portlet Programming by Cameron McKenzie
Programming Portlets: JSR-168 to IBM WebSphere Portal Extensions by Ron Lynn
Portals(both JSR) in my experience are not very efficient and too complex for development teams. It had never been successful amidst all hard work by the JSR teams. However the recent developments on the Flex side looks promising like AMF/Web services support, cairngorm, blazeds/spring etc and easier for java folks. This will certainly fulfill the rich internet experience using the Java platform
I totaly agree with you. I found out jAPS project (www.japsportal.org) which is a new kind of lightweight and flexible platform.
jAPS Team doesn't use portlet standards because they introduce many constraints and high costs in a project.
Take a lokk at this jAPS Team article "What we think about Portlets Standards"
I completely agree with all of you! From a programmer point of view things are even worse. I have discovered that portlets are only a nice concept since they are _not_ portable! The classic "hallo word" portlet can be freely imported everywhere but a complex portlet, for what I have seen, always invokes core elements of the underlying framework that makes it not portable, at least in the implementation I've seen to date.
Just my two cents!
