I am trying to construct a very simple web portal where two web applications that can be viewed on a same web page. I started the WebLogic Portal tutorial setting up a Portal Development Environment, Creating a Portal in a Development Environment, Assembling a Desktop in a Staging Environment and created my 1st Page on the Desktop. This tutorial got me close to what I want to create, but not quite there yet. As you can see from the attached screen shot, the web link I was able to integrate, is very small and cannot be resized.

The portal I need to build must allow for two URL to be displayed at the same time in full screen. In other words, I need to have a web page for a URL like google.com and another one for finance.yahoo.com either side-to-side (in two column layout), or two Frames, or on two different page tabs. But must be fully panned out on the webpage not cut-off like the screenshot.

Please note that I am VERY new to web portal development, so bare with my questions.

You can consider the Browser Portlet or the Clipper Portlet. You have to define the size of the portlet at design time. The easiest way to define an IFrame so that you don't need to worry about the size of the content is to set its width and height at 100%. The resulting HTML will look like the following:

<div class="bea-portal-book-primary-content">
<span class="bea-portal-theme-iframe2">
<div style="margin-top:-5px"> <IFRAME id="IFRAME_TEST_URL" NAME="IFRAME_TEST_URL" SRC=http://www.yahoo.com/" frameborder="0" width="100%" height="100%" align="middle" marginheight="0" marginwidth="5" scrolling="auto"> </IFRAME> </div> </span> </div>

As suggested, I tried using Web Clipper type of Portlet, but I was getting the following error message:

Could not retreive the clipped page at http://finance.yahoo.com
