The Lotus® Expeditor platform supports Portlet applications that conform to the JSR 168 specification. The Portlet development tooling component of the Lotus Expeditor Toolkit allows users to create, develop, launch/test and debug OSGi based Client Services Portlet applications, as well as convert existing Java EE server based Portlet applications to run on the Lotus Expeditor platform. The Portlet development tools also assist in providing a Portal-like development experience by allowing users to wire and aggregate Portlet applications.
A Portlet application bundle can be developed using many of the same Portlet development tools provided by the Rational® Software Delivery platform. You should therefore refer to the Rational online help section Developing Portlet applications
as your initial Portlet development tools reference.
The following table provides pointers to information on Portlet development activities and information on tasks that are unique to, or require special consideration when developing Portlet applications for the Lotus Expeditor platform.
