Sun Java System Portal Server 7.1 Technical Reference


To generate the rendered Desktop user interface (what the industry refers to as the “presentation”), the Sun Java System Portal Server 7.1 software makes use of either JSPs or template files. JSPs are preferred because they enable a much easier customization process without having to change the provider Java classes. JSPs also provide a way to enable a strict separation of business and presentation logic. Specifically, this means having the business logic in the provider classes and presentation logic in JSPs.
