Portal Project or Web Aplication project

Hello all.

I’m developing a new project in WM, my first one.

The default look and feel of the MWS is not compliant with my client so, we are atarting to search for another way of building them the solution.

So far, it seems that an application project should do the trick but, I am not able to add portlets in that type of project… Another way is to build a portlet project but that way, I can’t just add a view…

Can someone help me out, by pointing the diferences between this two types of projects and when to use one or another?
