Portals are the next generation application systems, offering personalized, seamless integration of diverse applications. The vision is that in the future, business users without programming expertise will build their own portal based environments. The Heinz-Nixdorf Endowed Chair at the University of Jena plans to extend its current research activities in these directions. This could be well done on the basis of former work and the group’s experience in areas like portal technology (gained within the context of JSR 286) and (semantic) web services.
