Hi everyone, does anyone know of a good enterprise java portal that does not cost 1million bucks? Something in the 3-5k range is available. Can i get some opinions on this decision?
Thanks

What do you want for the money?
Just the portal software?
Or a complete solution complete with hardware, database, appserver, hosting, etc. etc.?
Your cheapest solution is to start with Jakarta Jetspeed http://jakarta.apache.org/jetspeed/site/index.html (which costs nothing but development time may be longer thus more expensive for a full solution).
On the high end there's things like Novell exteND Director (formerly SilverStream ePortal Server) which costs $60.000 per CPU (development licenses at cost of media $14,-- a copy).
I've worked with SilverStream ePortal and it's an incredibly powerful system indeed. I think we more than made good the investment in time won over going with a cheaper product.

Guys, actually I think I just found a cheap portal solution. Its called JPIMP Portal (Java Integration Mangement Platform). I downloaded the eval and was quite impress with all the features..... Check it out http://www.jpimp.net . Any of you guys used this before? Well the good thing is that it only costs $5000 per server. Let me know if I'm going in the right path......
