Having "played" with WebSphere Portal since v4.1, I thought I knew quite a lot about portlet development - I mean to say; I started with WebSphere Studio Application Developer ( not quite NOTEPAD.EXE and JAVAC.EXE but ... ).

However, I found this book to be absolutely excellent - you can dip into it, or read it cover-to-cover. The sections on WebSphere Portlet Factory were especially relevant; I can now talk about parametric design and CAD in the context of application development.

Would strongly recommend to anyone interested in portlet development, or simply interested in WebSphere Portal

I bought this item because I work as portlet developer in WebSphere Portal. For this objective it's a great book, but if you're trying to find a general book about portlets programming I don't recommend you this book. This book give you a good idea of portlets developing using WebSphere Portal services, but I think that have weakness in facts as portal themes, the services that you could use in your portlets such as Puma or Credential Vault and a reference of integration with Web Content items.

Format: Paperback
This book covers much of WebSphere Portal features in an overview sense but cursory on the portlet programming aspect which is lacking in the beginners attempt to understand the JSR186 API and doesn't differentiate it with IBM's own API approach. It has several typo errors but nothing that is significantly non-readable. Overall, I would recommend it for getting to know WebSphere Portal if the online WebSphere's redbooks appear daunting by lack of direction and large volume.
