Toward portal perfection
BEA Systems has just released WebLogic Portal 9.2. The company explains the JEE-based enterprise portal server is designed to help simplify the production and management of custom service-oriented portals. Among new tooling, federation and community enhancements in WebLogic Portal 9.2 are new dynamic, adaptive user interface capabilities with granular features such as enhancements for AJAX support and support for Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP).
Enhancements to WebLogic Portal 9.2 include:
standards-based portlet federation (based upon the WSRP standard)--support for syndication of portal books and pages, personalized delivery, performance optimization and service life cycle governance.
a new community framework--part of portal business services that are designed to simplify portal membership, management and user production of community portals.
portal life cycle management capabilities--including the new release of BEA Workshop for WebLogic, which provides an Eclipse-based development environment for Java, portal, Web and service-oriented applications; portal propagation is also included to help simplify the IT management for moving portals through staging from development to production.
upgrade wizards--designed to allow customers to upgrade the portal domain from 6.1, 7.0, 8.1 and WebLogic Portal 8.1.4 and 8.1.5 portal applications.
