The Portals Dormant

The Dormant is Subversion repositories for Portals sub-projects that have had little recent development activity and no individual or group of individual committers has emerged to champion its ultimate promotion to an active one.

If you wish to use any of these sub-projects, you must build them yourselves. It is best to assume that these sub-projects will not be released in the near future.


Jetspeed-2 is an Open Portal Platform and Enterprise Information Portal, written entirely in open source under the Apache license in Java and XML and based on open standards. All access to the portal is managed through a robust portal security policy. Within a Jetspeed portal, individual portlets can be aggregated to create a page. Each portlet is an independent application with Jetspeed acting as the central hub making information from multiple sources available in an easy to use manner.

The latest version of Jetspeed, Version 2.2.1, most significantly introduces the Jetui client-side customization engine. Version 2.2.0 was our first release conformant to the Java Portlet 2.0 Standard. All releases prior, such as the 2.1.x releases, are conformant to the first Java Portlet Specification, the Java Portlet 1.0 Standard.


ApplicationsApache Portals Applications (APA) is a collaborative software development project existing under the Apache Portals project. APA is dedicated to providing robust, full-featured, commercial-quality, and freely available Portlet Applications under the Apache license developed at the Apache Software Foundation.
