Mayra, Rick -
Wasn't sure myself, so Wikipedia and Google saves the day:
..and if it's .jsp file format we're using, it ain't so clear:
perhaps you might find more authoratiive answers in the IBM portal development forum:
Thanx a lot for your attention!!!! It will be easier to continue my search...
Rick, you dont look ignorant at all... before my boss bring me this problem, i didnt have the slightest idea of what the hell a portlet is, but, as i "suffered" this demand, i had to run after this information... According to what i understood of my boss' explanation, a portlet is a common structure used in portals... it works like components inside a page... Imagine a portal and it has a module for "articles", another for "events", another for "sales"... each one of this modules is a PORTLET, working apart from the others (talking in "our language" now: "each one needs a different kind of help... it cant be a general help")... something like that...
I hope it was helpful (and i was clear enough)!!! Otherwise, im sorry!!!

I think you need to push back on your developers. One of our writers is generating Webhelp output for use in a portal application for remote access to the main application (users add portlets to their workspace according to their needs).
According to her, the developers are simply calling the Webhelp just the same as our main application calls the main online Webhelp. The Webhelp contains all those dreaded htm tags and doesn't deal with jsp files at all.
