JSR168 Bookmarks Portlet project launches

Bookmarks Portlet Project

After being encouraged to do so on the uPortal mailing list I have taken the plunge of establishing a Sourceforge site for my bookmarks manager portlet.

I am very fortunate that I have already recruited John Fereira and Brad Johnson as developers who were involved in the development of the original CBookmarks channel in uPortal.

The project will initially be based upon my conversion of my Struts based bookmarks manager into a portlet using the Struts Bridge.

I have not yet committed any files to the project yet but I do have some code waiting in the wings. If you're interested in getting involved leave a message on the project forums. Developers of JSR168 compatible portals other than uPortal are also very welcome.

Here's hoping it will be a big success.
