I read in one of the few books available on the subject that portlets ultimately derive from Servlets.

However Portlets - JSR 168 do not seem to be part of either the J2EE 1.4 or JEE 5 specification???

Are they part of the JEE specification???

Not sure what the question is. Portlets have their own specification. There is no requirement for every J2EE server to also be a portlet container, if that is what you were expecting. Just like a J2EE server isn't required to support other APIs, like the Java FAX API.
