"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's tough nut to crack for sure.

I use Oracle portal in my company and feel pretty good about it in terms of funcationality.

Never used Sharepoint Portal, but since it's a TP proprietary offer, the chances are better if you check the Manual or docs coming with the product or just call them.

your second question is a matter of personal preference, I say this because mostly it's too subjective to tell.

but the advantage off using oracle portal application over the sharepoint:

1. better compatibility and better service integration (since they are all Oracle products)

2. Oracle portal works with Oracle OID and oracle SSO most of the time, so Oracle database products can offer you all you need in one stop shop.
