Pagelet Wizard pagelets are small pages that provide display-only snapshots of applicable content. Pagelet Wizard provides a user-friendly, browser-based graphical user interface (GUI) that leads you through the series of steps involved in creating and publishing a pagelet.
Portal administrators and nontechnical users can use Pagelet Wizard to integrate and transform data from a variety of data sources
