Red Hat JBoss Portal

A proven solution for building high-impact, self-service applications

An expensive, rigid stack doesn't give you the flexibility to quickly build the high-impact, self-service applications your business needs. But creating a complex application from scratch can be risky.

Red Hat® JBoss® Portal gives you the best of both worlds—reliable, enterprise performance coupled with flexibility and simplified integration.

Meet your business goals with Red Hat JBoss Portal

Lightweight and powerful, Red Hat JBoss Portal helps you:

  • Extend your market reach. Free up your sales and marketing staff to focus on your high-margin, specialty offerings. Use JBoss Portal to promote lower-margin products and expand into new geographies that don’t yet justify on-the-ground sales and marketing staff.
  • Empower your customers. Deliver targeted, localized, mobile-enabled content, integrated with popular social media websites (e.g., Facebook, Google+, Twitter). Lower your operational costs while improving your customers' services experience.
  • Enable your partner networks. Arm your partners with self-branded, highly customizable applications that perform reliably and predictably under diverse and demanding production environments.

Lean, flexible platform

A lean enterprise portal solution that can start up in seconds, JBoss Portal provides a standards-based framework for businesses seeking the sweet spot between flexibility and reliable, enterprise performance.


Red Hat JBoss Portal offers:

  • Performance, reliability, and minimal maintenance due to a foundation based on market-leading Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 technology.
  • Reduced development times with developer tooling and a standards-based framework.
  • More value, faster, via tight integration with the entire Red Hat JBoss Middleware portfolio.
  • Flexibility to easily unify multiple systems through a centralized platform.

JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform


Deliver powerful performance and scale

Built on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, JBoss Portal delivers a high-performing, highly scalable portal solution while maintaining an extremely light footprint.

JBoss Portal uses scalable clustering to support numerous changes and millions of users. As a result, you benefit from minimal maintenance and near-zero downtime. Its high-availability services offer the clustering, caching, failover, load balancing, and distributed deployment features you require in a portal platform.

Get value from your existing technology

Bring your best technology together

Web applications are highly integrated with other dynamic systems such as content management, service-oriented architecture (SOA), and business intelligence systems. With Red Hat JBoss Portal Platform, you can integrate your current systems instead of completely replacing what you already own.

Your internal and external end users can have access to, and interaction with, back-end applications, SOA services, and web applications. And advanced application bridging through JBoss Portlet Bridge lets you easily integrate your existing technology with JBoss Portal.

Get the most from your JBoss investment

JBoss Portal Platform was built to interact seamlessly with Red Hat JBoss Middleware. The portal:

  • Runs on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform technology. 
  • Offers developer-friendly tooling such as Portlet Bridge and integration with Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio

Additionally, the Red Hat JBoss Operations Network management plug-in gives you a single interface for managing JBoss Portal and the rest of your Red Hat JBoss Middleware portfolio.

Making the most of your existing hardware, software and developer investments helps you save money and achieve faster time-to-value.

Reduce development and maintenance times

Straightforward developer tooling

A developer-friendly environment simplifies portlet development and system integration. The tooling plug-in for Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio allows for development, testing, and deployment of portlets without having to leave the development environment.

Within JBoss Portal, JBoss Portlet Bridge lets your developers deploy JSF2 and RichFaces4 applications directly into your portal. These intuitive developer tools speed application development and simplify integration.

Increase IT agility

By supporting a wide range of infrastructures, JBoss Portal ensures your organization's resources are freed up for faster, smarter innovation.

The multiplatform (Red Hat Enterprise Linux®, SUSE, Microsoft Windows, Solaris) distribution offers flexibility for most environments. Your application developers may choose the frameworks and APIs that best fit their applications' needs without sacrificing stability, reliability, and management.

Due to flexible, service-based architecture, developers get a modular series of enterprise deployment features for clustering, caching, transactions, web services, security, and more, regardless of the selected programming model or deployment style used.

Dynamically tailor your customer#39;s experience

Today's businesses must be able to quickly deliver high-impact, tailored customer experiences via both traditional and new channels of consumption. With JBoss Portal, you can build mobile-enabled, multi-channel solutions integrated with popular social media sites like Facebook, Google+, and Twitter.

Additionally, JBoss Portal provides you with an intuitive user interface, configuration options, administration tools, and access to public APIs. The flexibility you get in this simple, open framework makes it easier than ever to develop, customize, and manage any self-service application—from the smallest tactical mashup-style application to a large, mission-critical website.

Accelerate application development and deliver customized self-service directly to your customer's hands.
