On Monday I am off to present at the IBM WebSphere Portal Technical Conference in Stuttgart Germany. My talk (Extending Portal for offline and managed clients) is on Wednesday and it is about taking your portlet applications off-line with the Lotus Expeditor along with integration of your portlet applications with Eclipse based applications.
The sample application shows how different components (portlets, SWT views, etc) are aggregated by the portal and wired together using the Portal Admin UI. We demonstrate Portlet to SWT, Portlet to Portlet and SWT to SWT communications.
I will also be presenting the week after in Baltimore in the U.S. version of the conference.
