A Portal Page displays content. A page can contain one or more portlets. For example, a World Market page might contain two portlets that displays stock tickers for popular stock exchanges and second portlet that displays the current exchange rates for world currencies.

The portal page is composed of JSP's and statically included JSP fragments (JSPFs) for screens, themes, and skins that are typically created by the Web designer of the portal. These JSPs reside in the corresponding /screens, /themes, /skins directories under :

–UNIX and Windows: was_profile_root/installedApps/cellname/wps.ear/wps.war

–i5/OS: AppServer_root_usr/installedApps/cellname/wps.ear/wps.war

Within this location, sub-directories for markup, locale, and client types are used to support portal aggregation.
