4. Why do we need web-portal? (Uses & features)

5. Are there any difference between portals and web-portals? If so, please advice with an example.

I got the basics and below are my understandings. Could you please correct me if i am wrong?

1. What do you mean by portal?
Karthik: Portal is similar to a web site, but it does more than a normal web site. i.e.., user can modify/set the preference based on their needs and likes.


2. Why do we need portal? (Uses & features)
Karthik: More look and feel based on customers needs, basic services inbuilt.

3. What do you mean by web-portal?
Karthik: Portal and web-portal are same. Name confuses

4. Why do we need web-portal? (Uses & features)
Karthik: More look and feel based on customers needs.

5. Are there any difference between portals and web-portals? If so, please advice with an example.
Karthik: Portal and Web-Portal are same.

6. What's main difference between portals, web-portals, website, web-services? Explanation with an example would be helpful.
Karthik: Portals - A web page consists of 2 or more port lets
Portlets - A web application (.war) within portal container
Web-Portal - Portal and Web-Portal are same.
Web Site - A normal website. A web site with more advanced features are called portal
