The newly formed JBoss GateIn project promises to deliver a scalable and intuitive portal solution. I will show developers how to get started with GateIn and how to navigate and administer the portal and portlets. I will also demonstrate how to skin the portal to look like a “normal” web application that delivers content management, authentication, social capabilities and many other services.
If time allows, I will also dive into the JBoss Portlet Bridge project which allows you to run a Seam, Richfaces, or normal JSF application as a portlet.
