What are the new JSR 168 and WSRP portal standards?
To help our customers create a better user experience while trimming their integration and customization costs, leading software vendors can help ensure portlets use open portal standards such as JSR 168 and WSRP.

JSR 168, developed by the Java Community Process and formally approved, was created to establish a standard portlet application programming interface (API) to ensure interoperability among portals, portlets, applications and other content sources.

  • Java Specification Request 168 (JSR 168), has been developed and governed by the Java Community Process (JCP) standards committee
  • Approved October 2003
  • Java only – backed by all portal vendors, BEA, IBM, SUN, Plumtree to name a few
  • All portal vendors will release standard compliant product by the end of 2003 or during the first half of 2004.

WSRP, created by the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS), is a Web Services standard that allows the integration of remote content and applications into portals.

  • Web Services Remote Portlets (WSRP), has been developed and governed by the OASIS standards committee
  • Approved, WSRP v1.0, September 2003
  • Web services standard which supports any language and is also backed by all major vendors

What is the open source site POST and why is Documentum, BEA, SUN and Plumtree creating and launching this site?
Documentum, BEA Systems, SUN Microsystems and Plumtree are working together to support the freedom to build standards-based application components that can be assembled within any portal. The POST (Portlet Open Source Trading site) provides a forum to help customers develop portlets and components based on the new JSR 168 and WSRP portal standards.
