Overview
Themes and Skins are simple but most important to any Portal server. These both consist of acollection of different Jsp files and all these jsp files are then combined together with portal tags at differentlevels. The portal tags controls, renders, and manage these jsp files with predefined internal portalstructure. The basic internal directory structure for all these jsp files is controlled by “Default.jsp”. Themeand skin jsp files are managed as part of the main WebSphere Portal enterprise application and are thus partof the WebSphere Portal EAR file. WebSphere Portal EAR file must be updated and redeployed when addingnew themes and skins. The updated theme and skin files are placed at
WAS_ROOT/installedApps/nodename/wps.ear/wps.war
WebSphere Portal comes with several themes and skins out of the box. The themes and skins provide thelook and feel to the pages and portlets within WebSphere Portal. Writing a theme or skin from scratch, oreven writing one based on an existing theme, requires some programming skills.
