In this section, we would like to offer critical and informal views on the standards relevant to building portal solutions, as well as the variations in their implementation by some vendors. There are two standards that are highly relevant to building portal solutions: WSRP (Web Services for Remote Portlets) and Portlet API Specification JSR 168. • JSR 168: Portlet Specification aims at establishing a standard API for creating portlets. • WSRP: Builds on current standard technologies, such as WSDL and SOAP: Aims to solve the problem of traditional data-oriented Web Services (these required the applications to be aggregated before any specific presentation logic could be used for presenting the content) by introducing a presentation-oriented Web service that allows interaction with content that has been delivered by other Web Services.
