Amplify’d from docs.oracle.com

The following portlet types are supported by WebLogic Portal:

  • Java Server Page (JSP) and HTML Portlets – JSP portlets and HTML portlets point to JSP or HTML files for their content.

  • Java Portlets (JSR 168) – Java portlets produced using WebLogic Portal can be used universally by any vendor’s application server container that supports JSR 168.

  • Java Page Flow Portlets – Java page flow portlets use Apache Beehive page flows to retrieve their content.

  • Java Server Faces (JSF) Portlets – JSF portlets produced using WebLogic Portal conform to the JSR 127 specification.

  • Browser (URL) Portlets – Browser portlets display HTML content from an external URL; no development tasks are required to implement them.

  • Clipper Portlets – A clipper portlet is a portlet that renders content from another web site. A clipper portlet can include all or a subset of another web site’s content using a process called “web clipping.” Clipper portlets are discussed in Creating Clipper Portlets.

  • Struts Portlets – Struts portlets are based on the Struts framework, which is an implementation of the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture.

  • Remote Portlets – WebLogic Portal’s remote portlets conform to the WSRP standard; they can be hosted within a producer application, and surfaced in a consumer application.
