LifeRay, my first foray to the Portlet Development

Corporate webs are like cotton candies, they have to be tasty and colorful hehehehe. Anyway, I think I have found a tool that will help me build portlets with Sun Java System Application Server. And it's called LifeRay. Liferay was built around Session EJBs (yeeeeccchh!). But that is not necessary for me, my requirements for a portlet reference implementation are no Maven lock-in, must support different application servers seamlessly and LifeRay qualified on that regardless if it's using a Session EJB I am not going to take advantage of that anyway.

Nothing really interests me about front-end web development but the JSR-168 Specification looks promising enough to develop with.
