    still one version behind

    [A review of the SECOND EDITION, 2005.] In 2004, a reviewer of the first edition commented that it described version 4.1 of the Portal, while the current released version of the Portal was actually 5. There were significant differences between those versions, but the book was unable to address these. Now in 2005, there is the second edition. It covers version 5.1. However, the Portal is now at version 6. Still one step behind. Rather unfortunate. You should keep in mind that this probably arose due to the sheer complexity of the total WebSphere development effort, and the unavoidable lag time in publishing a text. The text does give an impressive roundup of the WebSphere Portal effort. The Portal has extensive personalisation and customisation. (IBM maintains a distinction between these, which the text explains.) The end user and the sysadmin can access these to present a nice UI. One chapter goes into a good level of detail as to how much tweaking you can do to this. A lot of effort has clearly gone into building out this ability. None of this is actually programming. Whereas to the programmers amongst you, later chapters of the book are more germane. One chapter describes the IBM Java Portlet class, and how it extends the standard HttpServlet. The Portlet API is explained at a level suitable for programming. To good approximation, you can think of the Portlet coding as a variant on JSP and servlet coding, which perhaps you might already have done. Continuing this, another chapter shows how authentication and authorisation can use JAAS. Overall in the book, you can clearly see that IBM has committed to producing code compatible with J2EE standards. Which means that if you already have a background in J2EE, it will help your assimilation of the book.
