So, what is OpenPortal?

I see the download for this on the the site:

OpenPortal Home Page at

So, this is an open source portal that is backed, promoted and 'sold' by Sun Microsystems? An "Open Source" portal from the same people who won't open source Java itself?

I see that it is JSR286 compliant. I also see that the page mentions GlassFish and even Liferay?

I'm curious. In fact, I'm almost thinking of downloading and playing with it.

I guess my real question is about Sun's objective is with this product, and for that matter, how will this product compete against the WebSphere Portal Server?

Any opinions?
