Overview: To handle portlets, a portal framework needs to know which portlets are accessible in the system. WebSphere Application Server V6.1 provides new Managed Beans (MBeans) for portlets and portlet applications. A developer uses these MBeans to access information from the deployment descriptor of any deployed portlet. This white paper explains how to use the aggregation tag library to construct a developers own portal framework, how to use the MBean API and how to modify portlets to support additional markups.
