Where do I find the Portlet development in Visual Web Pack?

Java Studio Creator 2 update 1 is bundled in the JES release in support of the Sun runtime stack, specifically: Sun Appserver 8.x and Sun Portal Server 7. JSC provides web app and portlet development tools plus the necessary server plugins to optimize the deployment of standard web apps and portlets to their respective target runtime containers. In 2006, the tools organization decided to merge the Java tools product line into the NetBeans IDE and phase out the Java Studio Creator brand. The Creator migration plan outlines a schedule for this process and is a release driver for feature migration to NetBeans. With the release of NetBeans 6 in CY07, the only remaining feature to be migrated is the Visual Portlet Builder.

The Visual Portlet Builder feature was dropped from the NetBeans 6 feature list due to schedule and resource constraints. Since that time, the Portal Server team and the Visual Web team have joined forces with the goal of providing an integrated portlet development solution in a future release of NetBeans. This recent collaboration has made it possible to expedite the implementation and eliminate the remaining blocker for Creator EOL.

The new Visual Portlet Builder Beta is now available at the Portal Server modules download page.
