Sun Portal Server 7 to include JSPWiki
WOOT! In bed with the big boys ;-)
Yesterday we announced that the long awaited Portal server 7.0 has been released. There are some really interesting features in this release that you might not normally associate a Portal Server aimed at Enterprise Intranets.
First is the inclusion of JSP Wiki - this means you can deploy and manage the wiki infrastructure centrally yet allow communities to maintain their own sites - so you get the benefits of centralized management without the inflexibility. As well as support for Wiki Portlets (and Portlets within wikis), Portal Server 7 introduces the new concept of communities - to reflect the informal. non hierarchical nature of many workgroups (ie. virtual teams). There is also great support for AJAX in Portlets to enable you to develop apps. with a much richer user interface.
I hope we get the portal stuff from you, Sun guys :). Well... Of course we do. It's LGPL. Right?
