demonstrations using WebSphere Portlet Factory.
At the beginning of the process, I knew enough to build a simple
drill-down dashboard portlet, taking data from an Excel spreadsheet.
After much experimentation, trial and error, I've now built a whole host
of different portlets using this most excellent tool - interaction with
DB2, online awareness using Lotus Sametime, Ajax type-ahead
functionality in queries, drag and drop eventing using DOJO etc. etc. etc.
The value of the tool continues to impress me, especially as I wouldn't
consider myself as a proper Java developer.
In fact, I'm so impressed, I'm actually going to attend a 4-day class in
Manchester in early October.
The sky is truly the limit.
