Portlets are tiny web applications that can be embedded into Portlet-compatible portals. There is a JSR-168 specifying the standard Portlet API (see presentation).
Some resources:
javaportlets.com
portlets.blogspot.com
WebLogic specific resources:
Portlets with WebLogic Portal
Portlets with WebLogic Workshop

Have you looked at the Jakarta Jetspeed? Does it use this portlet specification?

Jetspeed is about to support the Portlet API, but not yet, as far as I can tell from their web site.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
