Implementing an External-Facing Portal
The portal includes a set of features that enable the use of the portal as an external-facing portal. These features provide the following:
Improved performance over the internet by reducing the number of resources required for each request. An external-facing portal avoids the use of resource-heavy HTMLB and client-side eventing (EPCM).
Web-like behavior , such as the use of the standard browser buttons, such as Back , Forward and Refresh , for navigation.
Easy customization of the portal look and feel with the use of tag libraries for creating navigation iViews and page layouts with custom iView trays.
