Use URIs to identify, access, and display IBM
® Connections content and profiles in a portlet. IBM WebSphere
® Portal uses Piece of Content (POC) URIs to identify and address specific pieces of content in IBM
Connections independent of the page used to display the content. Using a POC URI, you can precisely identify what content you want to display without knowing where it should be displayed in your WebSphere
Portal server at the time you generate a link. For example, when a user clicks a link in a blogs summary portlet, the POC URI identifies the blog content. Clicking on a link that uses a POC URI displays the blog entry in the Blogs detail portlet on the appropriate page. The evolution to POC URIs provides a greater precision for identifying, retrieving, and displaying content. The URI specifies the identity of the content, not the location of the view of the document. The location of the view to the document is called the portal URL, or simply URL and the information contained in this URL includes the navigational state, or simply state.
