I'm going to stay out of the whole "perils o' portals" discussion other than
to say that
portals tend to make users go all bonkers and crazy-like. Kind of a
pandora's box
situation. No matter whether or not existing processes work, and work
WELL....
Mention the word "portal", and all of a sudden it seems that all business
processes
are needlessly deemed "antiquated" and sub-par unless they involve the
portal.

Liferay I've had some experience with, although not on the as/400 platform -
this was
in the course of a conversion from an mv/rdbms to sql server, and a crazy
new datamart
implementation. Of all the portals I've worked with, liferay I simply find
to be inferior.

You can try out some other solutions here:

I'd look into other cms/portal implementations to be honest, should you
decide to go that
route.

I have been looking at a portal product from Liferay.com The whole
idea of an AS/400 user interface using a portal and widgets is fairly
new to me. Any comments, suggestions, warnings, spells, and/or
defenses against the Dark Arts would be most appreciated.
