This article describes how to add client-side interportlet communication to your IBM® WebSphere® Portal (hereafter called WebSphere Portal) portlets using the Dojo JavaScript toolkit. It is intended for developers who are beginning to use Ajax with WebSphere Portal and want to replicate on the client the interportlet communication they have previously implemented on the server side. To get the most out of this article, you should have a good understanding of JavaScript programming, WebSphere Portal, and portlet development. See Resources for references which can help you gain this knowledge. The sample portlet application for this article was developed using IBM Rational® Application Developer v7 and was tested on WebSphere Portal V6.0.
