Developing Applications for IBM WebSphere Portal 8.0 using IBM RAD 8.5

IBM Course Code: WPL53CE

Vendor# WPL53G

GK# 9033

Course Overview

This course is designed for users who are new to developing applications for IBM® WebSphere® Portal Server V8.0. It describes the fundamentals of designing and creating portlets and how to put the new features to use including managed pages. Specialized topics include migrating a version 6.1 theme to the new version 8.0 theme architecture by using client-side aggregation V2 (CSA2), developing custom themes by using CSA2, and customizing the user interface for tagging and rating. Developing multi-channel applications using RAD 8.5 is also covered in this course.

In addition, you have the opportunity to apply best coding practices throughout the course, developing robust portlet applications and portal themes by using Dojo, asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax), and client-side aggregation. This course makes extensive use of Rational Application Developer V8.5 to develop and test JSR (Java Portlet Specification) 286-compliant portlets.
