Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) is a standard for content and application providers to provide their services to organizations that are running portals in an easily consumable form. By virtue of the common, well-defined WSRP interfaces, all Web services that implement WSRP plug in to all WSRP-compliant portals without requiring any service-specific adapters. A single, service-independent adapter on the portal side is sufficient to integrate any WSRP services.
With WSRP, integrating content and applications into portals is made easier. No custom programming effort using a variety of different interfaces and protocols is required. Portal administrators no longer have to write interface code to adapt the WSRP services for their portal. Services deliver content to the client portal along with the presentation information so that the WSRP services appear and operate to portal users exactly like local portlets.
