Portals and Portlets are emerging technologies and gaining lot of popularity. Portals are gaining attention among programmers due to their ease in development, richness in functionality, customization of interface and pluggable architecture. With this popularity today there are many open source Portal Frameworks available and list of these open source frameworks is all the time increasing. It is important to evaluate all these Portal Frameworks in an effective manner, based on core functionality i.e. their compliance with JSR 168 Portal API and optional features available to the programmers i.e. IDE plug-ins, utility packages, monitoring tools etc. We have selected a small number of Portal Frameworks based on their popularity and our experience of using them to evaluate their core and optional functionalities. This paper will outline our findings and current trends in the feature rich Portal Frameworks. Paper will explain our criteria for rating different Platforms and then will discuss each selected Platform. In the last section we have Inter-Platform WSRP compliance test results.
