Web Services at Apache Hosts WSRP4J Open Source Project for Remote Portlets.

(September 29, 2003) - The OASIS Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) Specification recently approved as an OASIS Standard is now supported by an open source WSRP4J project organized through the Apache Software Foundation. WSRP "defines a standard for interactive, presentation-oriented web services. It simplifies integration of remote applications/content into portals so that portal administrators can pick from a rich choice of services and integrate it in their portal without programming effort. As a result, WSRP becomes the means for content and application providers to provide their services to organizations running portals in a very easily consumable form."

One of several projects in the Apache Web Services area, WSRP4J is a technology donated by IBM "designed to facilitate quick adoption of the WSRP standard by content and application providers and portal vendors. WSRP4J provides the WSRP4J Producer, which allows implementing such WSRP compliant services based on a free, open source software stack consisting of Tomcat, Axis and WSRP4J which in turn includes Pluto, the JSR 168 reference implementation. In addition, the WSRP4J project provides a generic proxy portlet written to the Portlet API, the WSRP4J Consumer. The WSRP4J Project provides two different provider components as well as two WSRP consumers. different provider components as well as two WSRP consumers. Each of these components can be installed separately and has different prerequisites."
