    Lost portlet(remote) request parameter - portal-bridges-stru

    Henric Norlander Newbie

      Hi, i'm new to portlets and have a problem with a struts portlet that I want to use remote via WSRP.

      I have made a simple struts portlet using portal-bridges and it works just fine when it's used as a local portlet.

      I configure 2 portals (JBoss Portal 2.7) and set up my portlet as remotable in the producer portal and then try to use it in the consumer portal. That also works, BUT...

      When I send a request parameter and try to use it in the Action class its empty...

      Can anyone help me?

      Regards, Henric
