Hi ranchers
For a project of portal development, I have been assigned to develop, deploy and test a single portlet application.
so, i was thinking of what tools to use and accordingly i have decided to use some tools. but before starting to read their documentation, I need you to check if the tools are complete and compatible?
The tools I chose: Pluto(as portlet container), apache-tomcat (as a server)

thanks in advance

Here's a little tutorial I put together that demonstrates how to write, run and deploy a portlet using nothing more than JetSpeed and the JDK:

Portlet Development - The Most Basic Environment

So, at the bare minimum, you don't need much. Having said that, Eclipse and NetBeans have all sorts of plugins that make it much much easier than using notepad and the javac compiler.

Good luck!

You mean 'despite' people like me. I'm all about self-promotion and driving book sales. It's the other altruistic people on the site that make up for my lack of character and integrity.

Kindest regards, and keep posting!

Cameron, that was an excellent tutorial. Just what I needed. I like that you used basic command line tools to demonstrate everything.
