Just wanted to know if it is feasible to migrate from existing frameworks to portals and portlets. If yes then what are the major issues to be considered during migration.

I guess it depends on what framework you're migrating from.

There are portal bridges from the apache foundation that help wrap struts and JSF applications as portlet applications. From a Servlet/JSP standpoint, portlets can be 'converted' fairly honestly.

Hi Venkata,

Maybe, Liferay could provide better solution for you to migrate from existing frameworks to portals and portlets.

Liferay supports:

JSP,
JSON,
JSF,
Struts,
Spring MVC,
etc.

I heard that the way Liferay supports migration of portlets is that we can migrate JSR-168-compliant portlets to Liferay, but we can migrate Liferay portlets to other JSR-168-compliant portals. I don't have any experience in migrating portlets across different platforms like this. But this is what I heard from the Liferay communities.

If you're using JSF, you might find this JSF portlet tutorial helpful. It demonstrates how to take a Java Server Faces application and use the apache JSF bridge from the apache bridges project to allow the JSF app to be deployed as a portlet.
