Portlets can be created for the Storefront and the Administration Applications of KonaKart which may be integrated into portals supporting the JSR 286 portlet specification. Our most popular portal platform is Liferay for which we have many live examples.
The portlets can be created by running an Ant task once the Community Edition or Enterprise Edition of KonaKart has been downloaded and installed. Full instructions can be found in the documentation. A KonaKart portlet may also function correctly in other portals supporting JSR 286 although these haven’t been tested.
Liferay has become a very popular platform for KonaKart developers. There are three different approaches available in order to integrate KonaKart with Liferay:
- Create portlets from the standard JSP / Struts2 storefront application and GWT based administration application, by running the ANT tasks supplied with KonaKart.
- Create your own portlets that communicate with KonaKart using the APIs (POJO, JSON, SOAP or RMI).
If you have any doubts on which approach will work best for you, don’t hesitate to contact us and ask !
