About this book

Creating Web Portals with BEA WebLogic shows the beginning portal developer how to develop a portal application from start to finish, and supplies the intermediate developer with proven strategies and development techniques for creating an enterprise portal. It also provides the advanced Java application server developer with a full range of reference material.

This comprehensive reference goes far beyond basic portal development. The “Using Content” chapter describes how to incorporate static content into portals by use of the BEA Content Manager and also describes the process of integrating third-party content management systems. The authors explore interportlet navigation and input processing using Webflow and Pipeline Components, as well as the standard Front Controller strategy. They also demonstrate how to add value to a portal by using the Personalization and Campaign services, allowing each portal user to have a tailored experience. This book teaches the use of EJBs, covers the BEA logging mechanism, and discusses best practices—all skills needed to create a robust, maintainable enterprise application.
