The Portlet API and Type support in the Portlet Tooling component is entirely based on the Lotus® Expeditor Portlet runtime support.
- Portlet APIs supported - JSR 168
- Portlet Types supported - Empty, Basic, and Faces
Please note that there is no support for Struts Portlet in Lotus Expeditor. All three Portlet types are supported on the Rational® Software Delivery Platform.
The following list illustrates which Portlet type is created for each type option available:
Table 1. Portlet types
|Empty Portlet||A Portlet application that extends the GenericPortlet class with minimum code in it. You are required to write the code to complete the Portlet.|
|Basic Portlet||A Portlet application that extends the GenericPortlet class defined in the Java Portlet Specification 1.0 (JSR 168). You will be asked to select several options for generating sample code.|
|Faces Portlet||A Portlet application that uses the JavaServer Faces Portlet Framework (JSR 168).|
