Hi,

I have two portlets running on WSAD5.1.2. I would like to establish communication between both of them. Can i get some info about the steps involved.

Thanks in advance
Bill

Hello William,
This article explains everything.
ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/software/dw/wes/pdf/0412_roy-CooperativeStandardPortlets.pdf

Basically you have to write cooperative portlets and Wsdl files for each portlet.WSDL will tell the property broker what parameters are communicated between portlets.You will have to specify the wsdl files in portlet.xml.

If your portlets are running within the same portlet application (WAR), you can use the session (application scope). See this helpful article:

You don't need to use a proprietary API from IBM.
