CCM From IBM Connections Meets WebSphere Portal
We're proud to announce that Connections Content Manager functionality and content from IBM Connections can now be surfaced in a WebSphere Portal Portlet!
With the general availability of version 4.5.1 of the IBM Connections Portlets for WebSphere Portal a Community Library Portlet can surface content in your community libraries. A few notes:
The functionality is virtually the same as in the CCM Widget in IBM Connections
The portlet will run on WebSphere Portal 188.8.131.52+
A new version of the Connections Portlets for Websphere Portal was released on Greenhouse today. The significant enhancement in this release is the addition of the Community Library Portlet (CCM). The new portlets are located on Greenhouse at: http://bit.ly/10Cb5G9
Here are some screenshots to give you an idea of what the Portlets will look like:
