1./ Here's the API http://www.jcp.org/aboutJava/communityprocess/review/jsr168/

2./ Go here http://portals.apache.org/jetspeed-1/ to download the jetspeed framework that allows you to create portlets. You have the option of Jetspeed 1 (simpler but non JSR-168) or JetSpeed2 (a little more complex but JSR-168 compliant). The downloads have examples that you can use to create your own portlets.

Thanks for this. Have opted for gridsphere in the end, but you can have the points
Thanks Melanie. Can I ask why the C grade though?

Grading in EE is slightly different from school or college grading http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hi55 . In fact a C grade normally means that the someone barely helped you and was almost undeserving of points. If that's the way you feel, that's fine but I wouldn't mind an explaination if you do feel that way.
