A portlet bridge allows JSF (Java Server Faces) to work under a portal environment.  Wesley Hales, a portal designer at JBoss, says that new portlet bridge specifications allow companies to leverage investments in older technologies such as older JSF applications.  In this interview, Hales also discusses some of the new features we can expect to see in JBoss Portlet Bridge 3.0.  

Wesley Hales is the senior developer on the GateIn project as well as the lead JBoss portal UI engineer at Red Hat.  This video was recorded at the 2010 JUDCon conference, which was a down and dirty developer-focused conference centered around JBoss open source technologies.
