Hello,

Is there any alternative to websphere+RAD for portal development? Like Eclipse and Jetspeed? If so, can someone give me a link or explain how to install things and start development?

Thanks,

You can certainly download Pluto from apache.org and just link to the API jar files from your project Java/Web project in Eclipse. You can then code, compile, package as a war file and then deploy to Pluto. It's not as full function as the WebSphere plugin, but it's also not a rediculous resource hog like the WebSphere Portal Test Environment.

My signature links I believe show developing a Struts Portlet and a JSF portlet, both of which get deployed to Pluto using the various Portlet Bridges from the Apache Bridges project.

There are many commercial Portal Products..
1) SAP Netweaver Enterprise Portal
2) Oracle/Weblogic Portal

Ofcourse Open Source is a good alternative to WebSphere but i would recommend _not_ using open source for development environment and WebSphere for Production/Pre Production. Go open source all the way or stick to commercial all the way.
Hope this helps.

I'm using now for portlet development eclipse + jetspeed2. After this i will deploy, hopefully with no issue, the portlets to websphere., still in development phase. I know this will probably not be an easy task, but rad+websphere get on my nerves with how slow they are (i have 4 GB ram...). And these are the only commercial solutions i have.
BTW, thanks for the tutorials Cameron, they are of much help. Maybe you can put them for download?
