Do you know that WebSphere Portal Server V6 (WP V6) is based on WebSphere Application Server V220.127.116.11 (WAS V6)?.
If you are familiar with WAS V6 architecture and administration, and want to get started with WP V6 then it is the time. Having good knowledge of WAS V6 will help you quickly understand many configuration scenarios of portal server and help you solve problems quickly. If you do not have a printed version of the book "WebSphere Application Server: Step by Step" that concentrates on WAS V6, then it is time to get one.
Following are the documents on WP V6, I want to provide online (free of charge) to support readers of our book. Please refer to chapter 1 (when it is made available) of WP V6 series about the sample configuration you are going to learn, build and work. Meanwhile gain good knowldege on WAS V6 if you can. Refer to chapters 1 thru 11 and 17 provided in the printed version of the book if you have not already done so.
