To create a new portal framework is a long planed project for me. There are several reasons for it. Last I tried to use apache sing as a portal to use for own projects but finally I had to drop this idea. But I get a lot of impressions from different portal software I had already used and will try to bring the good together.
First try is out now. The last weeks I spent most time in specification. Specially how the http request and resource resolving should work to solve a wide range of requirements.
In the current version a demo application shows a simple website and if you have imagine you could see … what ever.
Have fun playing around with it … https://github.com/mhus/cherry-web
