  1. Since SAP Enterprise Portal uses the java portlet standard as well, would this be compatible? I guess I will have to try it!

  2. Is the toolkit JSR 168/170 compliant? That would be very cool. My group has been discussing building a fully compliant portlet wrapper for CF, but we haven’t had time.

  3. Rob, no, because WebSphere Portal Server is not. But we have done prelim JSR 168 and JSR 286 work to determine what would be involved in porting the toolkit, and it is on the list of things to look at soon.

  4. Hi Ben,
    Websphere portal server does support JSR 168 compliant portlets, but I believe it’s not enabled (at least in version 5) by default.
    It would be very, very cool if Adobe can port the toolkit so it supports both JSR 168 and JSR 286!

  5. WebSphere Portal supports both JSR 168 and IBM Portlet specifications. Portal Version 6 released back in July and announced deprecation of the IBM Portlet spec. It’s still supported but the recommndation is to work with JSR 168 going forward.

  6. Mircea, thanks for that clarification. We are looking into JSR-168 (and JSR-286) now and specing the work invovled, and your input is appreciated.

  7. Hey Ben, has there been anymore discussion on a JSR168 compliant portal tool kit for ColdFusion? I am looking to implement portlets for a Weblogic Portal framework and really do not want to get involved with re-writing existing code into Java/jsp if I dont have to.

    We here at East Carolina University are in the process of "cleaning up" our homegrown CF portal to release as open source in the near future. We would absolutely love some sort of JSR 168 or 286 API in CF. Any thoughts?
    As always, appreciate your work.
