Building the Web Front-End

You now have a back-end: you created a service.xml file to define your application’s data model, and generated the back-end code (the model, service, and persistence layers) with Service Builder. You also added service methods using the appropriate extension points: your entities’ *LocalServiceImpl classes. Now you can add a front-end to match new back-end, creating a fully functional application.

You’ll create two portlets: the Guestbook portlet for users to use to add entries and in a later step, a Guestbook Admin portlet for administrators to add Guestbooks.

Starting with this step, source code is provided in case you get stuck.

Let’s Go!
