Educational institutions, enterprises and industry are increasingly adopting portal frameworks, as gateways and the means to interact with their users or customers. Currently, however, portal frameworks impose a number of constraints and limitations on the integration of legacy applications. This typically means that significant effort is needed to embed an application into a portal, and results in the need to fork the source tree or re-design the application, for the purposes of integration. This talk will introduce portal bridging technologies, which can be used to integrate legacy applications, based on PHP, into a portal environment. We discuss the capabilities of these technologies and detail our work with the PHP-JavaBridge and PortletBridge-portlet, while demonstrating how they can be used with some standard PHP applications.
