The Project

In this project we will design and implement a prototype of a new portlet product for Descom's portlet product family. The current portlet product family consists of communicational, business independent portlets: Blog, Discussion Forum, Image Bank, Poll and Survey. Our goal is to extend this list with an event calendar portlet. You can see the existing portlets in the demo portal.

A portlet is a www-application based on the Java Enterprise Edition standard, and it runs in a portal environment. The technologies and applications used in this project include IBM WebSphere Application Server, IBM DB2, IBM WebSphere Portal Server, Java EE, Hibernate and Spring.

This project is part of our project studies in the University of Jyväskylä, in the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems. The project has begun on the 12th of November 2007 and will end on the 5th of May 2008. Our project group consists of five persons.
