A development slant take on an old saying...
Instead of "If the only tool you have is a hammer, you will see every problem as a nail." (Abraham Maslow)...
Try "If the only tool you have is a portal server, you will see every web application as a portlet"... and probably add 20% to your project as a result of needless complication to design, implementation and development environments.
IMHO, portal servers (everything implementing JSR-168) are a technology still waiting for the right problem to come along. Unfortunately, too many companies have brought the sales pitch and fork over big $$$ for the IBM and BEA suites and are using it for all web application development, irrespective of how devoid of portal-specific requirements the problem domain is.
