Portlet class

Below is the Java source:

package org.gatein.portal.examples.portlets;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.PrintWriter;
import javax.portlet.GenericPortlet;
import javax.portlet.RenderRequest;
import javax.portlet.RenderResponse;
 public class SimplestHelloWorldPortlet extends GenericPortlet
{ (2)
   public void doView(RenderRequest request,  (3)
                       RenderResponse response) throws IOException
   { (4)
      PrintWriter writer = response.getWriter();
      writer.write("Hello World !"); (5)


All portlets must implement the javax.portlet.Portlet interface. The portlet API provides a convenient implementation of this interface.

The javax.portlet.Portlet interface uses the javax.portlet.GenericPortlet class which implements the Portlet render method to dispatch to abstract mode-specific methods. This makes it easier to support the standard portlet modes.

Portlet render also provides a default implementation for the processAction, init and destroy methods. It is recommended to extend GenericPortlet for most cases.


If only the view mode is required, only the doView method needs to be implemented. The GenericPortletrender implementation calls our implementation when the view mode is requested.


Use the RenderResponse to obtain a writer to be used to produce content.


Write the markup to display.


Close the writer.

Markup Fragments

Portlets are responsible for generating markup fragments, as they are included on a page and are surrounded by other portlets. This means that a portlet must not output any markup that is not valid in a <body> element.
