Plumtree, Documentum, BEA Systems and SUN Microsystems are working
together to support the freedom to build standards-based application
components that can be assembled within any portal. The POST
site provides a forum for portlet development by taking advantage
new JSR 168 and WSRP portal standards.
POST aims to help companies kickstart their portal deployments,
leading to faster time to value for all portal customers by providing
open source portlets and a forum to exchange and learn about how
these emerging new standards.
areas within POST exist for sharing JSR-168 and WSRP portlets.
As with any open-source site on SourceForge.net, any
registered organization can contribute portlets to POST,
which become available to all other members of the open-source
Using POST, participants can:
lists of newly available portlets;
requests to the community for the development of new portlets;
modified or enhanced versions of downloaded portlets; and
portlet development best practices, issues and solutions.
In this way, organizations that submit portlets to the site benefit
from enhancements to their portlets developed by other POST members.
