Portal Application Development using RAD v7.0
Overview

This course utilizes a combination of instructor-led discussions and interactive workshops to demonstrate the capabilities of IBM’s Portal solution. The IBM Portal Server provides a single point of interaction through the implementation of portlets and provides dynamic information, applications, processes to build Business-to-Employee (B2E), Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to-Consumer (B2C) portals. This seminar will illustrate the skills and knowledge you need to code robust portlet applications using RAD v7.0 and WebSphere Portal's Portlet Toolkit.

Prerequisites

Each student should be familiar with the Web concepts, HTML, XML, e-business application concepts. Also, understanding of server-side Java applications and WebSphere Studio Application Developer experience would be advantageous.

Class Format

Lecture and Lab

Audience

Experienced Java and Web developers that will be developing portal applications on the IBM Portal Server using RAD v6.0

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, the student should be able to:

  • Understand the abilities of IBM’s Portal Server
  • Introduction to the WebSphere Portal Solution
  • Overview of portal administration aspects (installing portlets, managing pages and page groups)
  • Use of RAD for Customizing portlets and pages components (skins, themes, and tabs)
  • Develop and test application portlets using the portlet Application Programming Interfaces (API)
  • Use the portlet tag library to build JavaServer Pages (JSPs) for servicing multiple devices and global reach
  • Use of the Vault Service interface of the WebSphere Portal services
  • Illustrate packaging and deployment of portlets
