I am working on a project, where we'll want to access a servlet running on another server. The best way would of course be if we could run it inside a portlet in the portal.
The servlets come from a third party product and are written in JSP. They take arguments, allowing for example "automatic" login. Thats basically all I know and all I can read out from the documentation.
Perhaps my description is a bit too general, but I hope you understand the concept. Is it even possible to do this? I have looked some on Apache Portals Bridges, but not sure if that's what I am supposed to use.
You could request dispatch from the portlet to the servlet, but I doubt it will work out of the box.
Have a look at portletbridge project.
