Integrating IBM Connections 3.0.1 with WebSphere Portal 7.0 using Page Builder 2 Themes

This popped up on Twitter earlier today - it's a new article up on the Connections Wiki, written by Roberto Boccadoro and Andrea Fontana.

This article describes how to integrate IBM Connections 3.0.1 with WebSphere Portal 7 when using Page Builder 2 themes (the default for Portal 7). 

Integrating IBM Connections 3.0.1 and WebSphere Portal 7 is not possible using WebSphere Application Integrator (WAI) because WAI does not support Page Builder 2 themes. This article shows how to obtain a result similar to the one that was possible with WebSphere Portal 6 using WAI, namely, hiding the navigation header of IBM Connections and allowing navigation only through Portal.
