Portal-enabling non-portlet web apps

I’ve been involved in number of portal projects this year and one of the problems that all my customers complain about is the inability to integrate non-portlet based webapps into their portals. I just ran across this open source PortletBridge project which promises to fix that problem. Their description of the project is

The PortletBridge Portlet project creates a JSR-168 Portlet that can proxy and rewrite content from a downstream web site. Currently, the portlet supports:

  • Getting content from a downstream site
  • Proxy configuration (including NTLM and Basic authentication)
  • NTLM and Basic authentication as preferences
  • Using an xsl stylesheet to rewrite the content from the downstream site
  • Proxying of remote resources (e.g. images, flash etc.)
