    JBoss Portal + WSRP 2.0

    Michael Tech Newbie

      Hi,

      I am currently exploring WSRP, especially WSRP 2.0 (the draft). Does JBoss already have any WSRP 2.0 implementation?

      Is JBoss using WSRP4J in JBoss Portal 2.6? Or is it your own implementation? Can you tell me anything about WSRP 2.0 in JBoss Portal in the future?

      How important is WSRP (2.0) for you? How often is it used? What do you except from WSRP 2.0? Does it satisfy your needs?

      BTW: Is JBoss Portal based on Apache Portal?

      I am really interested in your optinions about this and any information you can give me.

      Greetings

      Mike

          Not yet, no.

          We already have a base-level implementation of WSRP 1.0 in Portal 2.4. The implementation is our own, based only on the spec.

          WSRP 2.0 will be supported at some point in Portal though it is contingent on the evolution of the Portlet 2.0 spec (JSR 286). Currently, we target the 3.x branch for WSRP 2 support.

          Our job is to provide implementations of the specs based on customer needs. WSRP addresses several different use cases, the most important of which is probably integration of heterogeneous portals and legacy data into a single, unified portal. That said, I'll leave it up to our users to comment on how important WSRP is for them, as I am not using the technology myself, just enabling it... :)

          No. JBoss Portal is a clean-room implementation of JSR 168 and other specs.

          Hope this helps.
