The new features introduced in the Java portlet specification 2.0, based on JSR 286, support coordination between portlets. Events and public render parameters are two mechanisms that enable portlets to communicate with each other. After a brief background on key concepts, this article walks you through the creation of a sample JSR 286 basic portlet application using the Portal Toolkit in IBM® Rational® Application Developer Version 7.5. In the process, it explains how the Portal Toolkit expedites the whole process to leverage these capabilities. Detailed instructions show how to enable events and public render parameters by using the new event wizard and the enhanced portlet deployment descriptor visual editor. The sample application that you develop in the article can be deployed on IBM® WebSphere® Portal Version 6.1.
