how to convert from web application to portlet project?

We have an existing Web Application project, but only after learning more about the MWS product did we realize that we’d like to take advantage of some MWS features offered only with Portlet projects. Is there any way we can migrate our views to a Portlet project, without redeveloping all the views from scratch?

You can either use copy/paste of the controls or try creating snippets. You’ll still have to ensure that the code and beans get copied to the target portlets though.
