The MyFaces Portlet Bridge is currently under active development for use as the R.I. for JSR-301. There are a log of challenges to setting up test cases and projects for this bridge which will hamper accurate development and testing. Therefore I think we need a series of demo project and project templates to be used with some official documentation that could guide the developer into quickly setting up a demo application using the Bridge so that various scenarios could be tested.
I personally think that a self-contained HelloWorld! JSF application would be fine to start off with and would provide us the ability to expand upon in the future. It would be best if this application could be built either with MyFaces 1.2 (including the jars in the portlet war file) OR built without the Jars for use in a true J2EE5 compatible container. The ability to run in many portals would be ideal and this should be the goal of the bridge's project in general, but an initial test using Pluto is probably sufficient to start off with.
