Page Assembly for Page-Based Templates When a user clicks a link on a page-based template, the portal servlet receives the user’s request, retrieves the content, properly formats it using a predefined portal template, and sends the assembled page back to the user’s browser. Additionally, PeopleSoft Enterprise Portal includes many features required for a portal implementation. Users can view the registry from a number of vantage points, including menu groupings and a favorites list. The available subset is defined by the metadata columns in portal_catalog. Customers who license PeopleSoft Enterprise Portal may register any content in the portal registry, not just PeopleSoft applications.
