Java Portlet application development - Design recommendations for productifying

Last Modified: 2013-11-24
Dear all,

I'm supposed to develop a Java Portlet based application to be deployed in a Jboss Portal application server.

But there are 2 constraints.

The first one is that the developemt must be productified. The application is now developed for one client but will in the future be sold to different clients. There must be therefore a clean separation of any client specifics from the features common to all clients.

The second one is that the application will some day be upgraded with a newer version. And it must be easily upgradable without touching any of the client specifics.

I don't much as of today about the nature of the client specifics. I can say they at least comprise the styling of the application, eache client will want its own look and feel. But the specifics could also include features.

I have been working with the Portlet technology for a few months now, have a good understanding of the framework, but I'm open to any suggestions as to how design and create such an application.

Thanks in advance for any comments!

Kind Regards,

Stephane, Stockholm
