Getting Started with Viewpoint PDK

The Viewpoint Portlet Development Kit (PDK) is a set of APIs, user interface widgets, styles and other assets that allow you to develop portlets for Teradata Viewpoint. The PDK also includes a "lite" version of Viewpoint that you can run on your desktop. You can download Viewpoint PDK here.


  • Intermediate understanding of the Java programming language
  • Intermediate to advanced level of Javascript, HTML, and CSS web programming experience
  • Understanding of the Spring MVC framework
  • Understanding of JDBC

To begin, we'll install the Viewpoint Development Portal, a cut-down version of the full Viewpoint release, onto your local desktop. Then we'll deploy the sample portlet, and finally we'll take a guided tour of the Widgetopia portlet.
