This IBM Redbooks publication will help you install, tailor, and configure the PTF2 level of WebSphere Portal Server for z/OS product. We discuss architectural, installation, configuration, administration, security and problem determination issues. We show you how to deploy portlets and how to convert a "normal" WebSphere application into a portlet.
Some of the key features of the IBM WebSphere Portal offering are that it delivers a single, universal point of access that is integrated, highly customizable and scalable to interact with key applications, content, people, and business processes. Also, it offers numerous portlets for e-mail, calendars, syndicated news, industry applications and many other functions.
The WebSphere Portal for Multiplatforms includes three editions: Portal Enable, Portal Extend, and Portal Experience.

This book covers the WebSphere Portal for z/OS and OS/390 product, which is based on the WebSphere Portal V4.1 Enable edition.
