The OpenPortal project is a community of users, developers, and partners who work to create an industry leading enterprise-class portal server. The OpenPortal project is derived from the Sun Java System Portal Server 7 product. As offered by the OpenPortal Project Web site, the objectives for the Portal Server open-source initiative include:

  • Expose Portal Server's mature and proven enterprise-class capabilities to the community and evolve it there through active participation from the community of developers, users, partners, and like-minded individuals.
  • Build composable, decoupled, and lightweight components that can be used by the developer community and other projects, for example, components that serve as development or test runtimes in tools.
  • Collaborate with other portal, middleware, or similar open-source efforts in the software universe for the benefit of the community.
