This article demonstrates the steps performed to implement JSR 168 compliant
cooperative portlets using IBM Rational Application Developer V6.0 and
WebSphere Portal Server V5.1. The article illustrates passing multiple values
from source portlet to target portlet without defining complex data type
inside WSDL file.
The term cooperative portlets refers to the capability of portlets on a page
to interact with each other by sharing information. One or more cooperative
portlets on a portal page can automatically react to changes from a source
portlet triggered by an action or event in the source portlet. Portlets that
are targets of the event can react so that users are not required to make
repetitive changes or actions in other portlets on the page. Cooperation
between source and target portlets is facilitated by a WebSphere Portal
runtime entity called the property b... (more)
The Datapower appliances support the use of the FTP protocols for message
transport. The purpose of this article is to present number of common use
case scenarios for FTP polling, illustrating correct configurations of the
device to support the use case.
The use case scenarios are as follows:
1- FTP Poller - polling files in one directory and transfer them to another
2- FTP Poller – polling files from FTP SERVER and forward them to another
3- FTP Poller (sFTP – FTP over SSL) - polling files from FTP SERVER and
forward them to another service
4- FTP Poller (sF... (more)
This article offers guidance to migrating existing servlet Struts-based
applications to portlet Struts-based applications - with a minimum of steps -
using WebSphere Studio Application Developer v5.0 with the WebSphere Portal
v5.0 test environment.
This article does not cover expanding the functionality of the Web
application (e.g., using portlet communication), nor is it an introduction to
Struts, WebSphere Portal, or portlet programming. The purpose of this article
is to enable you - with the fewest changes possible - to run a servlet-Struts
application as a portlet-Struts app... (more)

This article provides a list of general best practices to apply to any
WebSphere Application Server V7 and V8 environment. However, some of the
recommendations only apply to specific conditions and scenarios. These
recommendations could be used to set up any WebSphere environment.
General Best Practices for WebSphere Application Environments
1. All WebSphere Application processes should be running as non-admin/root
It's not a good practice to run a process as an admin/root user. For obvious
reasons, you don't want more folks to know about the admin/root password and
