Lotus Quickr wiki : Customizing: Quickr for WebSphere Portal : Using the Web Application Integrator for IBM WebSphere Portal
Web Application Integrator for IBM WebSphere Portal is a solution which allows external web applications to be integrated with WebSphere Portal. It allows Portal customers to further leverage their investment in Portal by using it to access to web applications, like Quickr.
Why is WebAppIntegrator solution unique?
Typically, when an external web application like Lotus Quickr is integrated with Portal, two approaches are considered: either write a set of portlets that expose the web app’s UI/functionality or use Portal’s web clipper portlet (an iFrame based portlet). WebAppIntegrator offers a third approach. It is particularly attractive because:
1. No portlet development is required to implement this integration since it does not use portlets at runtime. Portal administrators, in concert with the internal web application owner, can do this integration.
2. It does not use an iFrame. Consequently, the viewing area of the web application is not constrained in any way (i.e. no iFrame scroll bars).
Integration is achieved in three simple steps.

WebSphere Portal Family : Search for WebSphere Portal : Improving search quality in Portal Search
Quality of search today and in general is based primarily on the relevance scoring methods within the Portal Search component. It applies standard relevance calculation provided by the underlying open source Lucene search engine (http://http://lucene.apache.org//. In general terms based on standard scoring – “tf x idf”(term frequency times inverted document frequency). What is not taken into respect is the structure of information provided in a \’document\’, e.g. whether a keyword is also found in the \’title\’ or any other structural element of the document. Typically one would assume that when a keyword appears in the title, that this keyword is significant for this document opposed to that same keyword appearing in other documents but then only in its regular body text. This article describes what search quality tuning options are available.
