what is the use of PDK in Portal development?


Could anyone please let me know what is the main use of PDK in portal development? I thought it is only for providing examples and documentation.

This answer will be helpful for my interview preparation.

    Hi Lakshmi

    The PDK is a collection of information, samples and and tools for use by developers. Apart from providing sample applications like Application Integrator, HTMLB, Internationalization, WebDynpro, etc. it also provides Javadocs, tesing benches and Pluggins with features like Web Services.

    Some of the PDK tools include PCD Browser, PDK Component Inspector, PRT Admin Console, etc.

    Hope that was helpful.

    Best Regards

    • Hi Priya,

      Thanks a lot Priya for the Information. I tried installing PDK 6.0 sp9 in the portal with the same version. According to the installation doc provided with PDK file, I deployed it using SDM. The deployment looked fine. But after the deployment, I assigned the role Java_Developer to myself(I'm the super administrator in the portal), it just has an entry called Java Development in the TLN and inside that an entry called " OBN Examples". In the Detail navigation also there are some entries, but nothing is working or opening.

      Have I missed anything that has to be done for deploying & using PDK in the portal? Is "OBN Examples" is the only entry that will the there under "Java Development"? and even that is not opening anything. Please do help me.
