Two new portlets from the Portal Solutions Catalog ......
IBM Lotus Web Content Management Rendering Portlet
The IBM Lotus Web Content Management Rendering Portlet provided with this package is a solution which updates and improves how the rendering of Web content is performed in IBM WebSphere Portal. While the existing Web Content Viewer portlet (referred to in the WebSphere Portal documentation as a "rendering portlet") has evolved throughout several versions to implement sophisticated Web content rendering functions, it is still based on the deprecated IBM Portlet API. By contrast, the new JSR 286 Web Content Viewer has been entirely redeveloped based on the Java™ Portlet Specification 2.0 (JSR 286). In addition to the benefits afforded by JSR 286, the JSR 286 Web Content Viewer in this package also enables other features for Web content management, such as a new Web content portal page type and support for the standard search seedlist 1.0 format.
WebSphere Portal Extension for WebDAV Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning
WebDAV for WebSphere Portal allows WebDAV clients to connect to a portal server. You can use these clients to access the portal page topology as if it were a folder structure and directly read and edit page titles, description, metadata, and static page content, rather than to use the portal administration portlets. This access point allows you to work with portal pages and directly edit content on a live portal server, for example by using HTML design tools.
