The new IBM® WebSphere® Portal V6.1 release provides a full implementation of the Java™ Portlet Specification 2.0 (JSR286). This article helps you to recognize the new features and put them to their best use: We show how the concepts of the new standards, particularly interportlet communication, have been integrated with the product and give some guidelines to choose between using portlet events or public render parameters for communication. The article includes sample portlets that let you try out the portlet event feature and that can serve as a reference for adding event support to your own portlets easily.
