are you talking about WSRP ?
...or what is a remote portlet in this scenario?
I looked up the meaning of WSRP, and from what I read I think WSRP is pretty close to what I'm asking if JBoss supports that type of applicatoin architecture.
The scenario i'm conjuring is having a portal application with, let's say 4 portlets, which each is served from a different app server. so in essence, a total of 5 app servers. 1x Portal Server, 4x Portlet Servers...
