Extending Lotus Connections to WebSphere Portal

Prior to Lotus Connections 2.5 a single portlet was offered from IBM that allowed for read access to the Lotus Connections services (Activities, Blogs, Dogear, Profiles). For this release, we've created a new set of portlets that are aimed at making your Portal more Social!
