Hi,
What does the term "Portlet" really mean ?
Is it a kind of Servlet or EJB suite for standardization
of building portals or a specification ?
I don't get this out !

A portlet is a specialized stateful component capable of rendering itself in a standardized way. Portlets are used by assembling them into aggregate views some folks call portals. Portlets have nothing to do with EJBs as such.
JavaWorld has just published an article about the upcoming Portlet specification.
