This section discusses Portlet application logic development.
Aggregating Portlets to JSPsParent topic: Developing Portlet applications
Server based portal implementations (such as WebSphere
® Portal Server) dynamically generate portal aggregator JSPs using portal configuration information provided by portal application developers. The Lotus
Expeditor platform does not have such dynamic support, and requires the portal layout information to be specified in the aggregator JSP (using the HTML table element) with the packaged application before deployment.
Securing Portlet application resources
Though the Java
EE specification does not specify the requirements for Portlet security with regards to authentication and authorization, the Portlet Container will protect the Portlet resources similar to the way the Java
EE servlet resources are protected when accessed through a URI. In declarative security the application's web descriptor specifies the application's security policy (roles, access control, etc.) without changing the applications code. As you can see the authentication and authorization aspects for Portlets are similar to Servlet/JSPs.
