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
- 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
- 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
