Current participants include:
The protocol will work as follows:
- A client portal communicates, via the PRP, to one or many portlet repositories.
- The meta-data returned, should be displayed in human-readable format to the end-user/portal-administrator.
- The end-user/portal-administrator can then choose to either install or update existing deployed portlets from one or many repositories.
- Installaton/Updating functions are implementation details left up to the specific portal vendor.
For more on portlets see InfoQ's past coverage of the business case for Portlets.
