NOTE: This is a sample site only, it has not been deployed in a production environment, nor tested thoroughly. If you choose to use this sample in a production capacity, you must ensure to plan to test it as much as you would any code you developed yourself including functional, system, and performance testing.
Attached is a ZIP containing all the necessary data to import for the sample site, and a user guide. The site was built and unit tested on WebSphere Portal and Lotus Web Content Management 6.1.5.
The attached guide contains install instructions, a brief guide to some of the key features of the sample, and some ideas on potential customisations. For more detailed information, read the design document delivered in the previous instalment of this series. See Part 4 - Design
This sample is meant to be a tool for learning what the products can do and how best to implement a site using them. It contains components and code you can re-use, and the entire site is an effective “jumpstart” to your own solution should you wish to use it that way.
The site has been left as a single library for now, not split into two libraries as in the design document; the final 7.0 version of the sample will be delivered with a separate design library.
Where's the 7.0 version?
The 6.1.5 version has been migrated and re-tested on 7.0, and migrated data we re-exported directly into 7.0. Basically this is a “migrated 6.1.5” site that will work in 7.0, but not take advantage of 7.0 features.
A 7.0 specific version will be built in the near future, with a new theme developed using the new theme structure. The 7.0 version will also utlize the Portal Solution Installer, which will cut down the number of steps to install the sample.
Note that no more functional development will be done on the 6.1.5 version as enhancements will all be delivered on the 7.0 version; although we may still release updates to the 6.1.5 version to fix defects.

The user guide document and sample data ZIP are available for download in the attachment section below.
26 Oct 2010 - Replaced the ZIP file with a new version that has a Windows friendly content export. The original version had file paths that were too long for Windows. This new content ZIP has shorter file names.
10 Nov 2010 - An export/import bug seems to be corrupting the template mappings in the content library. I've put a workaround into the exported content to get around this issue until the bug is fixed. If you have already installed the sample, delete the content library re-import the content.
21 Mar 2011 - Added a custom skin and fixed some issues with the page builder support. The new "invisible" skin only appears in edit mode, and adds support for drag and drop of portlets and inline configuration. If you have already installed the sample you only need to update the Prosphero theme EAR, re-deploy the theme using the updated "deploySampleTheme.xml" file, and re-import the WCM content.
