  • Developer favoured portals (Jetspeed, Liferay, or ...?)

    Hi all,

    There's some talk in the company I work in of creating an intranet built on top of one of the portals such as JetSpeed, Liferay, or any other, nothing is decided in that area.

    I'm a long serving servlet-webapp developer but I've not had any experience with portal development, so I was hoping some of you kind seasoned portal developers could help shed some light on what portal makes for a good environment, with particular emphasis on how easy it is in day-to-day use for a developer?

    For example, is one particularly easy or hard to get to mesh with your build tools, or does one have a much quicker deploy-code-deploy turnaround time?

    Not all of these specifics may help, but just in case, it'd be likely we'd use the portal along with our pretty much standard dev environment:

    - Eclipse
    - Maven 2
    - Jetty (and Tomcat for production environment)
    - Selenium
    - Some apps are Ajax-heavy - using prototypejs and GWT
    - Spring
    - Acegi
    - Hibernate
    - JSP for views
    - Velocity for emails
    - MySQL and Oracle

    Looking forward to your responses, thanks in advance,
