A key new feature of the JBoss Portal 6.1 release is enhanced mobile capabilities. Now when users visit a portal site from a mobile device, they are automatically directed to the mobile version of the site.
With JBoss Portal 6.1, Red Hat is adding a few key mobile configurations for administrators. There are now rules that administrators can set up to detect characteristics like the form factor of the device and dictate whether the portal should load up the desktop version or a mobile version of the Website, Wong said. Red Hat has also included adaptive user interfaces, which enable the portal to render appropriate layouts for the page on the fly, using factors such as screen dimensions.
