A little research for your application to portlet(s) migration

Being asked to research application frameworks and then reporting back is a pleasant deviation from the usual grind of production deadlines and code review due dates. So, when the opportunity came up to do some heads-down review on what is available for a client looking to convert a rather extensive JavaServer Faces (JSF) application into portal ready portlet components for WebCenter Interaction (WCI) - we were giddy.
