Jetspeed on Weblogic FAQ

Wow, I've been linked from the Jetspeed Wiki as a source for information on running Jetspeed on Weblogic!

Because of this, I have updated my Problem Deploying Jetspeed 2 on Weblogic post that they link to. I have modified it to include links to other posts that I have had about Jetspeed on Weblogic, so that I really do contain a FAQ instead of just rambling on the subject.

So here is my complete list of posts on the idea, from first to last:
Problem Deploying Jetspeed 2 on Weblogic
Jetspeed 2 on Weblogic - part 2
Jetspeed 2 on Weblogic - Finally
Jetspeed 2 on Weblogic - update again
Jetspeed Fusion, Struts, and Weblogic

MVCPortlet Framework

I have just finished reading about the MVCPortlet Framework. This seems like a great framework for developing portlets! Like struts (or WebWork, or Spring MVC, or whatever) it is a MVC model for presentation data. But unlike all of the others, it is made specifically to work in a JSR-168 portal. We have been using the struts-bridge from apache jetspeed to write struts applications to work in a portal. While the bridge is nice, it has a key bug that seems to arise because the struts-bridge is a hack to get it working in a portal (specifically the "edit" mode button is broken). MVCPortlet seems like a much cleaner portal development MVC model.
