Pluto is the Reference Implementation of the Java Portlet Specfication (JSR-168).
Portlets are designed to run in the context of a portal. They are written to the Portlet API which are similar to the Servlet API. A portlet container provides a runtime environment for portlets implemented according to the Portlet API. In this environment portlets can be instantiated, used and finally destroyed. The portlet container is not a stand-alone container like the servlet container; instead it is implemented as a thin layer on top of the servlet container and reuses the functionality provided by the servlet container.
