Portlets in Actionby Ashish Sarin
Synopses & Reviews
Portlets in Action is a comprehensive, hands-on guide to building portlet-driven applications in Java. Covers Portlet 2.0, Spring 3.0 Portlet MVC, WSRP 2.0, Portlet Bridges, Ajax, Comet, Liferay, GateIn, Spring JDBC, and Hibernate. About the Technology
Portlets are the small Java applications that run within a portal. Good portlets work independently and also communicate fluently with the portal, other portlets, as well as outside servers and information sources. Using Java's Portlet 2.0 API and portal servers like Liferay, you can build flexible, stable business portals without the design overhead required by other application styles. About the Book
Portlets in Action is a comprehensive guide to building portlet-driven applications in Java. It teaches portlet development hands-on as you develop a portal that incorporates most key features of the Portlet 2.0 API. And because portals and portlets are so flexible, the accompanying source code can be easily adapted and reused. Along the way, you'll learn how to work with key web frameworks like Spring 3.0 Portlet MVC and DWR.
Written for Java developers. No prior experience with portlets required

================================ Table of Contents
PART 1 GETTING STARTED WITH PORTLET DEVELOPMENT
PART 2 DEVELOPING PORTLETS USING SPRING AND HIBERNATE
PART 3 ADVANCED PORTLET DEVELOPMENT
Jam-packed with tutorials, techniques, and insights from the trenches, "Grails in Action" helps users solve the challenges they're likely to face developing their next killer Web app.
For web developers used to wrestling with Java and XML, Grails is a breath of fresh air. Developers are instantly productive, picking up all the benefits of the Ruby-based Rails framework without giving up any of the power of Java.
Grails in Action is a comprehensive look at Grails for Java developers. It covers the nuts and bolts of the core Grails components and is jam-packed with tutorials, techniques, and insights from the trenches.
The book starts with an overview of Grails and how it can help you get your web dev mojo back. Then it walks readers through a Twitter-style social networking app-built in Grails, of course-where they implement high-interest features like mashups, AJAX/JSON, animation effects, full text search, rounded corners, and lots of visual goodness. The book also covers using Grails with existing Java technology, like Spring, Hibernate, and EJBs.
A "portal" is a browser-based container populated by small applications called "portlets". Good portlets need to work independently, but also communicate with the portal, other portlets, and outside servers and information sources. Whether they're part of internal or web-facing portals, high-quality portlets are the foundation of a fast, flexible, and successful development strategy.
Portlets in Action is a comprehensive guide for Java developers with minimal or no experience working with portlets. Fully exploring the Portlet 2.0 API and using widely adopted frameworks like Spring 3.0 Portlet MVC, Hibernate, and DWR, it teaches portal and portlet development by walking the reader through practical examples that incorporate key features and challenges. The accompanying source code can be easily adapted and reused by readers.
