Course Outline
   

This five day training class teaches students WebSphere Portal development using JSR 286 API. The JSR 286 API is the first revision of the portlet specification in nearly five years and contains significant improvements. The class also covers Struts and JavaServer Faces based portal site development. All labs are done using Rational Application Developer (RAD) v7.5.

Using AJAX technology with a portal site is increasingly becoming an option for developers. This class teaches an overview of AJAX and how it may be used in a WebSphere Portal web site.
