I'm working on an external and internal facing portal application using BEA
AquaLogic UI (ALUI), plugging some holes with S2 based portlets, mainly
dealing with moving our customers from DB based auth to LDAP through the

With ALUI you can use either JSR-168 portlets or plain old web apps so we
have taken the plain old web app course and have not used the portlet
plugin. One of my co-workers has created some portlets using the JSF plugin
