Displaying uploaded content from a portlet

Hi,

We're evaluating Alfresco, love the ease of installation and the UI is very clear and usable.

The one thing that was not immediately obvious is how to perhaps implement the follow usecase:

We have a portal, JBoss Portal, and in this portal we have content.  Right now the content sits in plain html and txt files and we need to edit them manually.  When I tested the JBoss CMS portlet, which doesn't compare at all to this product (and as a matter of fact JBoss pointed me to Alfresco), they had a portlet which allowed me to display the content that I had uploaded or created in their CMS.

Is there a way to do this in Alfresco?

Basically:

1- Upload or add a new document and edit
2- Add a portlet to a page in my portal and configure the portlet to display a specific piece of content from the Alfresco CMS.

So is there such a portlet already created?

if no, is there an API which would allow me to create one which will do what I need?

Thanks in advance.
