Hi All,
I am using RAD 7.0 and WPS 6.0 for portal application development. I have developed some JSR 168 portlets. As for as I know Struts-Hibernate is a good combination. I have few questions here.

1.Will the JSR 168 Struts portlet support Hibernate?
2. Will the JSR 168 Struts portlet support Spring?

If so how to implement them? Any External .jsr files to be imported to my portlet project ?

3. Is Portlet-to-portlet communication possible in Struts portlet?

Please let me know.

Thanks.
Ganesh

Hey Ganesh.

If it's up to you, you really should be looking at JSF, especially if you're using IBM tools. IBM has really let their whole Struts support slide, as that is no longer their direction. IBM is all about JSF now, and for that matter, JSF apps slide into a portal framework much better than Struts apps do.

Either way, using Hibernate or Spring within the portlet is completely fair game. Absolutely no problem using Hibernate with Portlets, or Spring for that matter. The only issue you might get is classloader issues, with potentially different versions of common jar files on the WebSphere classpath, but that can usually be rectified by configuring some of the PARENT_FIRST or PARENT_LAST classloader configurations.

Good luck!

Thanks Cameron. I will check both Struts and JSF portlets.
