developing a portlet?

Hi,

I understand that portlets run on Portal.
What servers/containers to run and test portlets from Eclipse?

Can it run on the tomcat, JBoss EAP?
Or do I need Portal, LifeRay, JetSpeed?

You can run portlets on several servers. You can run portlets on Tomcat with Struts, on Liferay, JBoss, JetSpeed, or in general in any server that supports portlets (i.e. implements a portlet container). Think of Portlets like servlets. Servlets need a servlet container to run, portlets need a portlet container. These two -servlet and portlet containers- are usually implemented as part of the same application server.

You need a portal on top of tomcat/jboss (the ones like liferay, apache pluto etc )
jboss eap/tomcat ee (J2EE) will not bring you closer to java portlet api (JSR-286) i.e components showing pieces of html to become part of portal page.
